O’s Notes: From the opening notes we felt the jovial tone and swinging groove on “It’s Been a Long Time”. Jeff Bush (tb) leads a sextet with Scott Robinson (cl, sax), John Colianni (p), James Chirillo (g), Matt Hughes (b) and Kevin Dorm (d). We liked the dynamics of the recording. The music came alive in our studio with great depth of the sound stage. This is not a big band yet the sound is full and musical engaging the listener through ten popular standards and Jeff’s title track. Colianni tickles the ivory on “Jazz Me Blues” followed by Bush bathing us in the melody on “Emaline”. We also enjoyed “Up A Lazy River” and “Seven Come Eleven”. No, it Ain’t So Bad To Swing at all!
