Indigo Swing – “INDIGO SWING” – [Welt & Placket]
Indigo Swing is a local (SF) band that has been at the forefront of the “Swing
Revival” in the Bay Area. Along with several other bands mining the rich music
of the ???40s and early ???50s in Jump Music, early R&B and Swing Jazz Standards –
this is music that is both fun to listen to and good for dancers.
This particular record is a bit low-key on a few tracks, but with classic Louis Jordan style songs and honking tenor sax from Baron Shul the overall quality is great.
I look forward to more recordings from all of the up and coming stars of this interesting revival.
