  • Description

    A Modern recording of (mostly) swing standards of the 1940's and 50's played with aplomb by four masters of their craft. Stylish small group swing of the kind that became popular alongside the big band music of the late 1930's and 1940's. There are ten tracks here - some well known standards, plus a few less frequently heard. The playing is superb - 4 guys who have obviously learnt their craft well through years of playing "on the road" as well as in the studio. The arrangements are intelligent and well thought out, and throw up quite a few surprises. The sound quality is excellent - crisp and modern, considering this was recorded in the "live" environment of the excellent Goldtop Studios.
