When "hot" big bands and "sweet" dance bands joined forces in the mid-1930s, the Swing era was born. Bandleaders like Benny Goodman became teen idols, while Nat "King" Cole led a much-copied piano trio and, along with vocalists such as Frank Sinatra, brought Swing ideals into extremely popular orchestral recordings during 1950s and '60s.
