Banjo Fan

What a Swinging CD!
Man-where has this group been! What a Swinging CD! Every song, a great selection and the originals (especially "Chances") are terrific! What energy, musicianship! The first time I heard it, I couldn't sit still-2+ listens later, I'm still dancing! A must for any jazz lover's colection!

Sharlet

I Had no idea!
I had no idea how much fun a group of this style could sound! I bet they are a great group live! My friends love this CD, it keeps you bopping around while you're listening to it & a fun CD to tool around in your car.I love the female singer, what a beautiful voice. This changed my mindset about stiff, old boring Dixieland-maybe because its so swinging. I LOVE THIS CD, I LOVE THIS GROUP! Can't wait until the next project. BUY THIS CD!

An Absolute Joy
I've listened to a lot of Dixieland, and a lot of Swing. I always loved Satchmo and Ella and the music of that generation. These All-Stars are able to combine an amazing variety of music into one CD of happy, toe-tappin' fun. You can't go wrong with this bundle of musical joy.

Steve J.

A great sound - it's hard not to smile!
When I first heard this, I was blown away! It is toe-tapping, fun music that crosses generations of music lovers. I even bought copies for my mother and a friend, who both love it.

John Banjo

Lots of Excitement
Great CD with lots of energy. Saw them perform live, bought the CD. Really well rehearsed and fantastic in person.
