Absolutely Fantastic Renditions of the Best of Swing
What else is there to say? John Williams, the Boston Pops, and Swing. A trio that makes for a beautiful sounding album with amazing renditions of "Don't Be That Way" "Sing sing sing" and "Frenesi." Best of all, an amazing recording of "It Don't Mean a Thing" with the wonderful Patti Austin (If I correctly identify the voice, as I had listened to Avant Gershwin dozens of times). Do not question, just buy, and you will want to break out in dance on your morning commute or relaxing trip back home.
john williams has always amazed me...
but I always wished that he had a jazzy CD. I loved his work in Harry Potter and ET, and now that i've stumbled upon this, I can finally enjoy my favourite style of music by one of my favourite composers. John Williams is a musical genius, and this album is a masterpiece.
Are you kidding?
Absurd that the title is swing. This swings about as much as the theme from Indiana Jones which is to say not at all. Unless one of your favorite jazz heroes is George Lucas or Harrison Ford please leave alone. I love Star Wars but I love Duke Ellington and real jazz too. Whoever put this CD in the section with Duke Ellington material should feel ashamed. Sometimes iTunes is iGnorant.
