Knights of Swing

Knights of Swing Soundtrack (The Knights of Swing)

Through their trials and tribulations, and sense of duty to persevere against all odds, ‘Knights of Swing’ is a moving, feature-length portrait that shows music can unite people from different cultures, backgrounds, and races. With a unique and special bond, the young musicians of “Castle High” find refuge and peace from the aftermath of war and the challenges of the adult world.

Executive Producer Rolland Jacks, who wrote the original story and composed all the music with acclaimed arranger/producer Emilio Palame, conceived the world from personal experiences as a young man in Southern California in 1947.
