Big bands and large jazz ensembles.

The presence of strings in big band jazz is a rather uncommon one. Yet they played a larger role in early jazz music and during the war years there was a revival with Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw and Gene Krupa, who all added string sections to the horns.
