Just looked at the Music Genre information page and heard Moonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller. It's listed a Jazz tune when I've always thought of it as Swing. I know Swing gets its roots from Jazz, but this soft, slow tune seems stereotypical Swing style.

Can you clarify for me?

Jazz is an umbrella genre for several styles of music, including swing.
