Aloitious Swingolitious.

From a Soundtrack?
the big band sounds like something from a movie soundtrack in the 40s. 'Down with Love' is groovin'! The second half of the album is great fun, the first part is sweet. I agree with the other posting about the singer Shawn, and I want to add she could relax and sing something a bit more loose and fun. I'm glad I purchased this and look forward to another album from this band. Good job. And yes, it is rather good for dancing.

This is a great CD for cocktails and some good ol swing dancing.
This is really quite good considering it was recorded live. It makes the music sound real. Shawn Clark has a great voice and I look forward to her singing songs that aren't so structured. She has great potential as a vocalist and although her voice was definitley made to sing jazz, I want to hear her do more than just american standards.

The arrangements are wonderful by Chris Byars. He really knows what he's doing. I am a fan of his Octet and see them whenever I am in town.

The CD emcompasses straight ahead jazz, sexy lounge, and a decent amount of swing songs and a mambo really good for dancing.

Josh Levine

Swinging music, a classic sound. You got it Lapis Luna!


Creates a great atmosphere
I love this CD for dinner parties at home, but also on my ipod while riding my bike to work. This is really great especially given that it was recorded live. Shawn Clark has an extraordinary voice and I look forward to hear her singing live next I am in NY and to the purchase of my next CD by Lapisluna. Keep it up! And try a little world tour next :)
