After 5 years playing together around the globe, The Swing Cats are pleased to present “Used to be Duke”. The band has dedicated their second album to one of the greatest composers of the Swing era: Duke Ellington. Delving into the composer's beautiful harmonies and melodies along with the distinctive touch of The Swing Cats, “Used to be Duke” was born from the desire to honour the life and work of Duke Ellington.
