* The mixing of musicians of varied and social backgrounds in the Midwest.* It had a softening effect on the original blues-oriented hot style.* Goodman became known as the King of Swing.* Kansas City bands exhibited more of that indefinable element in theEast.* These ensembles relied on the riff, a rhythmic-melodic figure that supported the harmonic background.
