ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Here is an album of real traditional jazz, filled to the brim with incisive solos, graceful melodic inventions, and rhythmic punctuations." -Mike Plaskett, WDUQ Radio

"Their music is energetic and well-played, and just has to be fun for both players and audience. The session blends a lively mix of mid-tempo standards and up-tempo swingers and the flavor is definitely New Orleans and Chicago. Cosentino's mellow sound on his antique Albert system clarinet and Jennie Luvv's period vocals will transport you to the twenties and thirties when most of the tunes were introduced. Cosentino and pianist Mark Kotishion also show they can sing as well as play!

There's a whole lot of good listening here! The title tune was composed by trombone master J.C. Higginbottom. The interesting chart salutes J.C. appropriately by using twin trombones. On "Minor Swing" by Django Reinhardt, the band really cuts loose. The tom-tom/clarinet sequences wlll take you back to "Sing, Sing, Sing" while Django would have appreciated the guitar solo by Eric Emmons. Cole Porter's "De-Lovely," perhaps anticipating this summer's film, showcases Paul, Jennie and more fine guitar. Gerry Gagnon's gutbucket trombone and sparkling piano by Kotishion are put to good use on "I'm Gonna Lock My Heart"while the Boilermakers prove there's a lot of life left in "Don't Go Away Nobody" from 1900. The session ends with a romantic trip to 1944 and "I'm Making Believe,"the most recent song on this CD." -Bill Falconer, www.jazzreview.com

This CD was rated 10 out of 10 by the LA Swing Dacers website: www.jivejunction.com. "This is a great album. All 17 tracks are totally danceable. They play a wide range of tempos... a hot new mix of vocal and intrumental numbers." -Brett Keane

"The music swings with ease and grace, and features some sparkling licks... Jennie Luvv is quickly developing the nuance necessary to interpret the music of the 20's. She delightfully delivers!" -Nate Guidry, Pittsburgh Post- Gazette

Wonderful mix of classic jazz & swing standards
In a very short time, this CD has gone from being something I stumbled on during my endless searches for classic jazz to becoming my favorite CD... period.
I can't remember another recording that sustained my interest over so many repeated listenings. Each time I hear it, I discover some fresh nuance, melodic twist, or vocal phrasing that I had not noticed before.
"Give Me Your Telephone Number Vol. 2" would be at the top of my wish list! There are still several chestnuts left in the American Songbook that could do with a dusting off by the Boilermaker Jazz Band.

Phill Jenkins

Fantastic music, perfect for dancing Balboa to
The swing scene in Melbourne Australia is alive and well and the music on this album is just perfect for dancing, especially Balboa. Having said that it is a great album just to listen to and I can't recomend both the album and the band too much. Come on down and visit us sometime!

Superlative
There's no question in my mind that the BMJB is one of the best living swing bands in the world. Paul and the boys channel the feelings of classic Benny and Louis (for example) without ever sounding like a tribute or nostalgia group. Jennie Luvv joined the band several years ago and I watched her develop into her own style and chops. On this album you can hear her performing classic tunes in her own unique voice and style that plays off perfectly against Paul's vocals and the tight rhythm section.
****
I heard this band several times a month for the four years I lived in Pittsburgh and the music was absolutely always fresh. The music LIVES.
****
With each year, each performance, my jaw drops further as the BMJB push ever on towards the stratosphere. They have thousands of rabid fans in Pittsburgh and swing dance communities the world over.
****
My grandmother, Mary, grew up during the swing era and she knows what classic jazz is supposed to sound like. I sent her this disc and she told me recently -- one year later -- that she listens to it every day. When I sent her the link to the new album, she wrote me back immediately to say she'd purchased it.
****
Be sure to get "The Mood I'm In" and the new album, 2006's "You Do Something to Me," which may be even better than this disc.
****
As an added treat, all of the BMJB albums from "Mood" onward sport the impeccable design of Studioluxe, vocalist Jennie Luvv's graphic design firm.

The Boilermakers deliver yet again
The highlight of the album for me is their rendition of "Minor Swing" which very original because the group isn't afraid to deviate from the traditional rhythms and make the song their own.
As for the rest of it, the band maintains the energetic bounce & vibrancy that is their signature style. Even the slower rhythm tracks stay bouyant and enjoyable.
Definitely a worthy album for any lover of swing music.

For swing dancing
I bought this CD on the basis that it could be used to dance the lindy hop, balboa and collegiate shag. It most certainly fits the bill. I rate this as 4 out of 4.
