ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Another Monday Night is the fourth CD release by Swingadelic, a fun and entertaining New York metro area “Little Big Band”. These sessions came as the result of the band’s Monday night performances at Maxwell’s in Hoboken NJ. All but one tracks are original compositions and arrangements by various band members. The stand out is Ellington’s “The Gal From Joe’s” that Swingadelic recorded for the soundtrack of “Play It By Ear”, a movie starring Michele Hurd and Rita Moreno.

Bandleader and upright bassist Dave Post has assembled a first-rate, diverse and talented crew that sound like they are having a good time and communicate that feeling and spirit to the listener. The band features the talents of alto/tenor sax player Buddy Terry, veteran of the Ray Charles and Count Basie Orchestras, as well as the bands of Horace Silver and Art Blakey.

Swingadelic has performed at Lincoln Center, NJPAC and the NYC BBQ, regional jazz & blues festivals and dances and concerts from Boston to Atlanta. Their previous three CD releases have received worldwide play and all titles can be purchased through www.CD.Baby.com. The band has appeared on several TV shows and music from Swingadelic has been featured in two films. The band maintains a web site at www.Swingadelic.com

“The strength of the orchestra is in the combined big band sound that shows plenty of muscle or sensitivity depending upon the situation. Swingadelic is a modern day representation of the roots of Jazz; the members are articulate in their execution and make the songs cook.” Frank Rubolino, Cadence

“The disc contains a first-rate mix of outstandingly well-arranged classics and originals as well as a killer assortment of solos. What a great collection!” Veronica Timpanelli, JazzReview.com

“The rhythm is infectious on each performance. Swingadelic seems like an excellent party band. It sounds authentic (as opposed to slick and faux retro). The arrangements and solos make for fun listening as well as dancing.” Owen Cordle, Jazz Times

“..the album is a success..this listener can report that the band is well-rehearsed (thanks in part to its twice monthly gig at Maxwell's in Hoboken), snug and swinging. Solos are fairly brief but respectable ...what the band does, it does well, and those who are partial to blues with a swinging facade should find Swingadelic quite entertaining.” Jack Bowers, All About Jazz

Outstanding Swinging Jazz with a hint of Blues
On “Another Monday Night,” the latest CD from Swingadelic, the accomplished “little” big band from the NY area shines as an ensemble as much as they do a collection of prolific soloists, proving the timelessness of sparkling and proficient jazz in an era when it sometimes feels like the great American invention has been marginalized. Bristling with solos of melody and bravura – like the stratospheric tenor of “Dance With You” or the deft piano skills of the “Puttin’ On the Ritz”-like “Early Morning Special” – this group resembles no less a band (though half the size) than the famed Count Basie Orchestra, investing each number with volleys of inspired but precise mayhem. Can they swing? Absolutely! Their take on Ellington’s “The Gal From Joe’s” is insistent and nuanced. Can they get down and dirty? The dynamics of the Basie-esque “Buddy’s Thang” make that a resounding “yes.” What about the blues? They’ve got it covered. “Busy Body Blues” and “Big Band Blues” are steeped in the language and phraseology of the idiom’s best practitioners. They do vocals too: “Back In New York City” is an excellent original, praising the city that never sleeps with a treatment that is both classic and contemporary – or, if you will, timeless. The music and playing on Swingadelic’s latest disc “Another Monday Night,” will want you hearing more of this swinging jazz with the kind of flair, melody, and dynamics to stir the heart and move the feet.
