In many swing pieces, almost all the triplets have slurs. 
There's no point in printing slurs, brackets and beams.
You can't leave out the beams, and you don't want to
leave out the slurs, so you just drop the brackets and
put the "3" on the slur.
That makes it very easy to read, and that's what I'm used
to in bigband music.
