Swanson is back at it again, dishing out colorful stories and fine musicianship in his signature smooth, easy-going style. His latest collection includes small jazz ensemble swing (Mr. Big, The Laughing Buddha Knows, I Don’t Like Pictures, Remember Being in Love) ; big band (Let’s Keep in Touch, We Make a Pretty Good Team, Green Grass); blues (Don’t Tell Me How to Drive, 10,000 Miles Away); and even funk (Throw Some Bacon On It). Swanson’s ability to mate the traditional styles and instrumentation with contemporary singer-songwriter attitude and vernacular is in full display; the lyrics are witty, warm, and poignant, backed by exceptional playing and solo work. The rhythm sections swing tight, the horn arrangements punch with authority, the piano and guitar work are flawless, and the vocals sit confidently on top inviting anyone and everyone to join the party.
