ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Swing Street Orchestra is a dance band with a rare ability: It provides stirring jazz and dance tempos without compromising either one," wrote Stuart Troup in New York Newsday. The band provides "a remarkable scaling down of the Basie "April In Paris" big band arrangement, with Swing Street's seven pieces capturing many of the subtle sonic details of the big band's performance, from the ebbing and surging reeds to the trumpet flutter at the finale" [George
Kanzler, Newark Star Ledger].
"Typically, big band music requires at least
sixteen players," said bandleader and trumpeter Barry Bryson. "But we've orchestrated scores of big band tunes; especially for this smaller group." These creative musical arrangements allow the seven-piece ensemble to produce the full drama and fun as well as the great sound of a much larger band. And as Kanzler wrote, "Not only are the musicians all committed to playing the music well, they're also dedicated to making it sound fresh and interesting too."
Swing Street consists of leader Barry Bryson on trumpet, Matt Finders - trombone,(Tonight Show Band), Doug Lawrence - tenor saxophone,(Count Basie Orchestra), Jack Stuckey - alto & baritone saxophone, (Benny Goodman Orchestra), James Chirillo - guitar,(Smithsonial Jazz Orchestra), Murray Wall - bass,(Benny Goodman Orchestra), Rick Visone - drums,(Lionel Hampton Orchestra), and the marvelous Judy Neimack on vocals
