IN THE MOOD takes a look at America’s Swing Era, the last time when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music. It recreates defining moments from the 1930s/1940s – from the happy-go-luckyera before WWII – to the start of the war when thousands of our youth were going abroad to defend our freedoms – and longing for the end of thewar when loved ones would be reunited. The famous LIFE MAGAZINE picture“The Kiss” by Alfred Eisenstaedt epitomized such a moment. The music arrangements of these American songs evoke powerful emotions even in people who were born decades after WWII.
