Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

If you dig contemporary bands like the Stargazers, the Big Six and Ray Gelato's Giants of Jive and of course Louis Prima and Louis Jordan this one is for you. Recorded live it proposes a good set of danceable music. I really enjoyed the excellent "Swanee River Boogie" (think Jerry Lee meets a Jive band), "Hook, Line and Sinker" which is full of joy, the instrumental "Shortnin' Bread" with great saxes (both juicy and screaming) and the rockabilly "Boogie Woogie Country Girl" with a heavy slap bass and piano. That's too bad they only play covers, and extremely well known ones, cause these guys (and girl) are good musicians and a little bit of originality would have been good. This said, I must say I couldn't help but tapping my feet while listening to it, so I guess this is the more important, don't you think? Available here. Fred "Virgil" Turgis Jumpin from 6 to 6.
