Close your eyes and you'll hear trombones, trumpets, the tuba and double bass. But don't trust your ears! What you are actually hearing is Java Five. These five well-dressed, young gentlemen celebrate the legendary vocal swing of the 1930s and '40s with dedication and fleet-footed charm.

Bringing swing to life

Three singers accompanied by a cheerful guitarist and a singing bass are bringing swing to life with interpretations that range from the aesthetic to cabaret, painting a whimsical smile on many faces.

The quintet gets its energy from the timeless spirit of swing music, enjoying it to the full, and it is consequently a sheer pleasure to listen to - and not just for fans of swing.
