Album Notes
City Rhythm's been knocking out audiences for years at nightclubs, dance parties and music halls with their high energy sets of swing, jazz and big band music. The Philadelphia Inquirer calls them "Philly's premier swing outfit". Their 1,000-tune play list is filled with swingin' jazz arrangements, rockin' blues tunes, unique original material, and vintage big band charts.

Nightclub gigs have included some of the most prominent venues and events in the east coast - The Five Spot and Zanzibar Blue in Philadelphia, The Supper Club and Swing 46 in New York, Swing City in Boston, Savoy South in Florida, and many others.

They frequently perform at jazz festivals and have collaborated with artists like Joey DeFrancesco, Candido, Jimmy Bruno, the UK's Ray Gelato, and others.

Swingin' Blue is a great album that I absolutely love to dance around to or just listen to in my car! It has an amazing sound; everyone involved performed wonderfully!

This was the only c/d of joey de francesco that we did not have. We love his mus
We(my wife and I)are fans of joey de francesco and this c/d is everthing we expected and more.We are serious jazz collectors and this c/d in our opinion gets a 5(*****) star rating.
