Jump, Jive And Swing! Various Artists (Jiving)


Ace Records
Catalogue Id:

The talents of six great British acts are combined on one CD to show that the Yanks don't have it all their own way when it comes to recreating the Golden Sounds of the swing era.

Dana Gillespie does Wynonie Harris and Julia Lee, Sugar Ray's Flying Fortress covers all bases from Roy Milton to Stan Kenton, while The Ray Gelato Giants recall the stomping sounds of Louis Prima and Benny Goodman (among others).

The Big Town Playboys and Tyrone Hibbs play jump blues like it's still 1947 and the whole package is rounded out with a couple of vintage tracks from the legendary Chevalier Brothers. Over an hour of sartorially spot-on swinging sounds for only around £7. Hey Bop a Rebop!!
