Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Chris Daniels & the Kings' new all swing CD, Louie Louie, featuring music by the greats, Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, and Louis Armstrong, is the best swing record of the year! Featuring Grammy Award winners Sam Bush and Todd Phillips, plus John Magnie from the Subdudes, Hazel Miller from Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Mollie O'Brien, Mary Flower, and many more, the CD captures the sound of swing and jump-blues. Recorded using 1940's mic techniques, 1990's digital HDCD audio quality, and mastered by Grammy Award winning Air Show Mastering Lab, this CD is "money" baby.

From the Label

The New album from Chris Daniels and the Kings, Louie, Louie (Moon Voyage), is not a tribute to frat rock of the early sixties, rather it's a tribute to Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan, and Louie Prima (you know the guy that wrote "Jump, Jive and Wail"). You can't go wrong with an album when the first track is "If You're So Smart, How Come You Ain't Rich?" Chris got the idea for this album back in '91, but when he ran it by his friend, Dutch DG Big Al, he said "It'll be great, but nobody will buy it. Who wants to hear Swing?" If only Big Al were still alive to see today's charts. Tracks of note besides the aforementioned include: "(You Dyed Your Hair) Chartreuse," "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead, You Rascal You," "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens," "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby," and "Five Months." fmgb Rock, October 16, 1998

5.0 out of 5 stars The pinnacle has been reached! April 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Chris and the Kings pulled it all together for this disc. Without a doubt their tightest music to date. Jump Jazz is the theme of this recording so if you wanna dance and tap your feet, this is the album for you. Chris wavers from smooth crooner to raspy seduction and the horn band paves the way and cleans up after the party. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this disc!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sing Along! July 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Although the title might make you think that this is a garage-rock recording, the title in fact actually refers not to the venerable garage-rock song but rather to three venerable gentlemen named Louis: Armstrong, Jordan, and Prima (maybe the recording should have been titled Louie Louie Louie...). Daniels and his gang have been performing this kind of music since well before the neo-swing craze, and on this recording they add a nice dimension to the sound by employing the fiddle of Sam Bush on several cuts. With fun cuts such as "If You're So Smart, How Come You Ain't Rich?," "Sure Had a Wonderful Time Last Night" (done really well--a highlight of the disk), "Ain't Nobody Here but Us Chickens," and "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby?," it's hard to listen to this disk without cranking it up and singing right along with it. By the way, the disk is HDCD-encoded, and the overall sound quality is pretty good, with that curious mixture of close miking for voices and distant miking for the instruments that is probably the best sort of studio compromise for this kind of music.
