Al Nicholls Quartet
That Swing Thing CD
The Al Nicholls Quartet is a current band performing the authentic Swing sounds of the 1940s and '50s.
These musicians are masters of their craft.
Stylish small group swing of this kind became popular alongside the big band music of the late 1930s and 1940s.
That Swing Thing includes some well known Swing classics along with some less frequently heard songs.
The playing is superb - these 4 guys have perfected their craft through years of playing on the road as well as in the studio.
The arrangements are intelligent and well thought out, and throw up a few surprises. The sound quality is excellent too.
