From the early years of animation to the gritty scenes of film noir, big band and jazz have a long tradition in film music. As much as we love the sound of the symphony orchestra, it tells only one part of the story. With the original Swing!, ProjectSAM took a first step in exploring the world of jazz and film scoring. Now, it is time to delve deeper.
There´s never been more instruments packed into a single library from ProjectSAM: solo saxes, jazzy clarinet, full big band chords, drums, basses, jazz guitar, piano, strings, vibraphone, small percussion - 100% new content, all blending perfectly. Meet the other film orchestra.
