Christianssand String Swing Ensemble’s history stretches back nearly twelve years, two critically acclaimed albums and a long list of hard-swinging and utterly charming live appearances. Gypsy jazz, French chansons, US swing jazz, a hint of opera and a touch of circus music are the ingredients of the unique CSSE mix captured well in the video segment from the outfit’s captivating office concert.
