ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"BROADCASTING LIVE, all across America, to all the ships at sea, and to all our boys in uniform stationed abroad, this is WARTIME RADIO REVUE!"

And so begins another evening with Pete Jacobs and his 16-piece big-band. Interspersing the hits of the Thirties and Forties, along with late-breaking news-stories from the war-years, as well as several original songs, and even some 1940-style radio commercials, listening to this band is like taking a time-machine back to a World War Two U.S.O. show. And with their three young female vocalists, a hot, driving rhythm section, and eight-piece horn section, the "classic-swing" sound is both full and authentic!. And when you add in their "armed-forces style" khaki-colored uniforms, it's all there!

Formed in November of 1997, they have already established themselves as one of the premier Big-Bands of Southern California with appearances at such swingin' landmarks as The Hollywood Bowl, The Derby, Catalina's Casino Ballroom, (home of Swing Camp, Catalina), and are a regular feature at Disneyland.

Dancing is what it's all about! Few bandleaders understand - and can deliver - what dancers want better than Jacobs. "My wife and I have spent a lot of time learning as much as we could about swing dancing. I have a real appreciation for what dancers want, because we go out dancing ourselves several times a week. We are avid Lindy-hoppers! I put our set together with the dancers in mind. It doesn't matter how great the musicianship of the band is if you can't dance to it." And the people who flock to every swing music venue they can find overwhelmingly agree!

"Kiss The Boys Goodbye" is the second release from Pete Jacobs and his Wartime Radio Revue. This 2-CD set has 25 of some of the best big-band swing music ever in one collection.

A personal note from Pete Jacobs: "This collection is dedicated to the men and women who served our country from WWII up to the present day. I would also like to give a special thank-you to all of the wonderful dancers, particularly Frankie Manning, who have taught the Lindy-hop to a brand new generation. I never cease to be amazed by the fact that some of the greatest (and happiest) music ever written came during one of the darkest times in human history. It is my sincere hope that this album helps people to discover, or to re-discover this great music. -Pete Jacobs

Fantastic CD. I recently took up swing dancing and always hunt for music to dance to. This one fits the bill perfectly. All the old swing songs with crystal clear sound. I look forward to their next CD!

Fabulous Big Band & Music Quality !
I received this CD in record time! It is a fabulous Big Band CD reminiscent of WWII tunes that were popular during that era. The CD music quality is Fabulous ! I will play it at my 4th of July Party 2006. I am a Baby Boomer who LOVES not only Rock & roll, but Big Band also.
