I'm the Bryce that "David" mentions in a following review. My friend David told me he mentioned my name in a negative review of DMHO, so I thought I should check it out and post a review of my own. I totally respect David's opinions. He is knowledgeable about swing music, and especially of the silent film era. However, my review of Stand is a little different.

I was introduced to this album when I did some photography for Denver and his band. I would like to say first that Denver is one of the nicest people I have ever photographed. He is genuinely honest in life and how he treats everybody, and that had an in influence on how I listened to his music.

I would agree with David that Jesus and God are mentioned quite a bit in this album. There is no denying that Denver and his talented orchestra are followers of Christ and love to worship him! There is no subtleness in Denver's passions and who he lives for. It pours out of this album with in a clear message, and that is OK with me.

David wants this album to be like the swing music that he loves and admires so much. However, this is not a replica of that era, but it is Denver Bierman's own personal orchestration. Denver has the creative liberty to make this music his own, and he does that really well. David is right. The music is tight. I've seen two of Denver's concerts and the same can be said about his lives shows.

Furthermore, I disagree with David's opinion on Denver's scatting. I was floored at one of Denver's shows when he scatted. I have seen a lot of jazz musician scatt and I have even seen professors speak on the art of the scatt. Denver can scatt like nobody's business.

Now, back to my review of the album, Stand. The best I can offer is a story.

This is the first cd released by Reel Loud records with DMHO and possibly their best ever. From the anthem "Stand" to the rockabilly version of "Solid Rock" DMHO shows the musical talent that simply sets them apart. If you love horn bands DMHO is a must!Timeless Christmas Also fans of Big Band swing and Christmas music must check out DMHO's Timeless Christmas CD. It belongs in everyones collection.

Exceptional sound and arrangements. A unique style for Christian music. You will love the jazz/big band arrangements of classic hymns, such as, on this album, On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand. If you like big band jazz and jazz-rock, you will love this album; if you're a Christian, you will love it all the more.

My entertainer mentor sent me a copy of this record back in 2004, and hands down it's the worst neo-swing album I've ever heard. All these years later it has stayed with me as the ultimate example of what not to do if 1) you want your music to sound authentic, and 2) if you want to represent Christianity to people who like Vintage and retro music.

Like many Christian acts, Denver claims in the record that his act is not about the music, it's about the Lord. Listening to the music on this record, I suspect that Denver may be 100% correct that it's not about the music. Denver shows that he's done very little swing homework, making washed-out references to a hogdepodge of mid-century and swing-related sounds that never meshes together and never sounds like he knows and loves those sounds intimately. His real influences, Christian rock and church music, betray him over and over throughout the set. As for its dancability, I am an experienced social jitterbug dancer and I will tell you I'd end up floating to the wall on song two and spend most of the rest of the set there because it is so hard to dance to.

The first track sounds like a washed-out Brian Setzer. Tracks two and three scream "modern-day Christian rock" and have no swing to them whatsoever. There is a washed-out salsa sound midway into the album that is the most un-salsa salsa I've ever heard. The "I'll Never Have to Say 'Amen'" tune, although I agree with the lyrics, is a parody of New Orleans-style jazz that makes it sound trite and hokey (like a lot of people think it is, unfortunately).

Simply put Denver & The Mile High Orchestra IS AWESOME. I am a CD reseller, I take large bulk lots and list them on Amazon. While I was listing this album, the awesome art work on the cover said to me "YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO THIS" That was ONE WEEK AGO, since then I have listened to the CD at least 2 times a day, and ordered the new Christmas album. AWESOME STUFF - hey Im no music expert or anything, but these guys SOUND GREAT and are a breth of fresh air, when it comes to the stale carbon copy CCM scene! Maybe its not classic swing, but IT IS DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING I HAVE HEARD AND I APPLAUD IT!

To the guy who gave them 2 stars... buddy, you think you can do this better, FINE... DO IT... GET PUBLISHED... you are out of place advertising your upcoming band under a review! It makes your review worthless, as objective as it may be, it is blown away by the thought that "Denver is no good... but I am, so buy my stuff... when it comes out..." if... it comes out.. Make it on your own. Get the log out of your eye dude!
