ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Encouraged by the phenomenal success of the Eighties 'Hooked On Classics' style, there followed a series of three instrumental 'Hooked On Swing' albums by the renowned alto sax musician and bandleader Larry Elgart and His Manhattan Swing Orchestra, which featured the now tried and tested formula of taking favourite titles played in an updated and contemporary series of musical 'chapters' in an album of long medleys. The original 'Hooked On Swing' album saw worldwide sales of over five million copies, making it the world's best ever selling Swing album at that time.

Mediaworld has selected the very best tracks from the 'Hooked On Swing' collection, and are proud to present them here to enthuse those familiar with swing music, or as an introduction to a new era of swing music audience. Larry Elgart will delight you with these excellent arrangements, and prove how swing really is king, and how Larry Elgart earned his reputation as 'The Ambassador of Swing.'
