Reading academic research about what makes music swing and some of the stuff is cringeworthy but there are some good observations in a couple studies too, like how laying back but staying in time or why it actually works when you even out 8ths when the feel is definitely swung

One of the neatest I found is how there ends up being a specific order of what beats are loose and what are always together that probably makes a bigger difference in whether something swings or not than anything else and explains why I’ve heard recordings of classical music that swing with even 8ths and everything

(Down beats are loose, back beats are tighter, offbeats are always together)

I liked the phrasing of a line in the intro of one study saying that if a triplet feel was what made something swing, everything in 6/8 would swing

Like it’s right but also wrong since 6/8 isn’t uniformly in 2, but still
