Swing TUNE? As in no words, just playing? I don't know that I could narrow it down to only one "Swingish era" tune which is my fav, if you are including the Big Band stuff, the popular Jazz such as the Duke, the Count, et.al., however, one of my faves I often liked to have the youngsters listen to was the One O'Clock Jump-the one which had the wild frenzy of cascading trumpets at the end. Of course, Basie, & it was covered by others.
