With an all-star cast of musicians, Australian drummer Andrew Swift's debut recording packs a Swift Kick
. From the inimitable trombone and vocals of Wycliffe Gordon, to the tough, gritty solos of modern day tenor titan Eric Alexander, Swift Kick
is a straight-ahead record with wide mainstream appeal. Veteran pianist George Cables brings his signature brand of hard swinging piano, while rock-solid bassist Dwayne Burno teams up with Swift to lay a solid foundation for a bevy of exciting instrumentalists that includes trumpet master Ryan Kisor, rising saxophone star Sharel Cassity, skilled guitarist Yotam, and virtuoso trombonist Michael Dease.
