O’s Notes: This is a joyful collection of fourteen traditional swing hits. “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie”, “Don’t Mean A Thing” and “Sweet Georgia Brown” have widespread appeal that keep you smiling. This is accentuated by the strong line-up including John Pizzarelli on guitar and singing songs like “Straighten Up And Fly Right” and The Manhattan Transfer harmonizing vocal doo-wop. Erich Kunzel conducts the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra with brass and strings providing accents in all the right places. This CD has definitely Got Swing!
