Album Review

Guitarist Frank Vignola can play nearly any style, from sounding like Django Reinhardt to fusion. On this set of 14 familiar Gershwin songs, Vignola plays swing without copying Reinhardt, creating fresh ideas within the vintage genre in his own style.

The music is quite accessible, witty in spots, and always swings. The overall results are rewarding and easily recommended to fans of the swing guitar.
