O’s Notes: Danny opens the set with The Monkey Song from Jungle Book and we’re off to the races with Swing That Music! This one easily lives up to its billing with Danny energetically swinging, singing, scatting and tooting his sax with a band that is synchronized with his groove. Howard Allen (g), Pete McGuinness (tb) and Warren Vaché (cornet) are among the star-studded musicians. By the 3rd track Bacher is fully warmed up and cooks on “I Want You To Be My Baby” including great work on piano by Jason Teborek and sax by guest artist Houston Person. The twelve tracks revisit work of Louis Jordan, Louis Armstrong, Jon Hendricks and more classic material including a few warm ballads. Danny respects the originals and pours a ton of emotion into an excellent performance.
