ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Swing Out In the Groove” was the second album recorded by The New Deal Rhythm Band. This album, recorded in 1980 in Seattle, Washington was probably the most fun to create because of the choice of material and the players at the time. Over the years, musicians would come and go from the band, but this group really worked well together. They were all huge fans of Louis Prima and long before David Lee Roth recorded “I’m Just a Gigolo” and “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” The New Deal revived these Louis Prima hits. No one could play ‘boinga-boinga’ piano like Johnny Stool and when you gave this shy guy a piano and a microphone … watch out! The guys in the band had visions of being the next Louis Prima & Keely Smith with Sam Butera and the Witnesses. The New Deal worked many showrooms and lounges in Las Vegas, Tahoe, and Reno; and, in the Louis Prima tradition, the band always closed a set by marching out into the audience playing and shaking hands with the crowd.

Linda Asher’s father had been a singer on the radio in the 30’s and he and her mother had Linda singing at a very early age. One of the songs her parents drilled into her was “You’re Just in Love” because of the challenging counter-point. The New Dealers, always open to a challenge decided to see how fast and tight they could play it …so don’t try this at home! Jerry and Linda were big Star Trek fans and what swing album would be complete without a jazzy version of the original Star Trek theme!? Perhaps the biggest kick on the album was recording “I Wanna Be Like You” from “The Jungle Book.” Nimrod, Johnny Stool and Elfo threw everyone else out of the studio to record the vocals on this cut, and cut loose they did! Many years later Jerry got to meet his hero songwriter Richard Sherman and they have since become great friends. Just think how ahead of its time The New Deal was – since then Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and The Jonas Brothers have recorded this song! So, Swing Out … In The Groove!
