I'm the director of the film that this soundtrack is taken from. I'm biased about the music of course, Lisa and Ian did amazing work on it. What no one has mentioned is the phenomenal contribution from the very great Clarence Clemons, his sax stuff on this album is truly wonderful and quite unexpected. Enjoy.

Lisa Stansfield proves that she can move from one musical genre to another with ease. It's good to see that a British artist in the 1990's can produce an album of swing that will be enjoyed by many in the next millennium. Her version of 'Mack the Knife' is the best by a woman that I have heard

Lisa Stansfield's name is listed above the title and there's a reason why: she sings about 10 of the 15 songs, and she really does quite a good job, considering her singing style is better suited to R&B/Pop than swing (which is why this doesn't get 5 stars); still, she shines on such numbers as "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" and "Ain't What You Do". (She has a hand in writing several of this CD's selections.)As a whole, this is pretty much a fully-realized production -- not a bad choice in the bunch! The band's pretty tight, the singing's fine and a great amount of fun and care obviously went into it -- it shows!DEFNITELY RECOMMENDED!

If for no other reason Ms. Stansfield's version of Mack The Knife is worth the price it breathes new life into a timeless classic. I have played this version numerous times in the past six months to mixed audiences with the same result - that song is great or who does it? When I tell them it is brand new from the former or still dance diva they are further amazed. The rest of the CD well I think it is wonderful and one of those nice pleasant finds that you can enjoy both as listening and dancing.

I really don't think Lisa or Ian (her hubby) had much time to get this done, as the songs needed to be IN the film that she was (probably simultaneously) making. If you know your Lisa, you know that her best stuff always comes when she's not thinking about it, and this baby is the ultimate proof! Maybe it was growing up singing in pubs, maybe it's Ian's influence, maybe it was her parents, who knows?? The point is that Lisa can sing ANYTHING in her sleep! If you like the standards, if you love the incidental whimsy that music takes on when it's geared up for a film (especially a small one....), if you're a fan of the soul divas but have no clue why anyone would listen to swing music-this is your c.d.!!

My only disappointment was the valiant effort to rework "Baby I Need Your Lovin' " ; it just won't work for anyone who's got Levi Stubbs ingrained in their noggin', but Lisa and Ian get points for trying.

The original song "Why Do We Call It Love?" will knock your socks off, and you'll SWEAR it's vintage 50*s London swing, but it ain't!

I can never do a Lisa review without somehow mentioning Dusty (that's a good thing, Dusty fans don't take such comparisons lightly, believe you me) and here is proof posiitive that Lisa is gearing up to be the heir apparent (if any ONE singer can do it, that is....). Those of us who have followed Lisa closely knew back when she did "Down in the Depths" (and made every big name of 1990 look like an amateur!) that a universal songstress was blooming before our very ears. Wish I could still go down a pub somewhere and see her live....

GET IT NOW!!!

I bought this CD to complete my collection of Lisa Stansfield's work. I've been in love with her voice since her debut release Affection. But like most of her fans in the US, I knew nothing about the movie Swing. After seeing the video for Baby I Need Your Loving on a public access music show, I decided to give it a try. I have never been more shocked by a cd purchase. This has become my favorite of all of Lisa's music because it's so different from what she's done before, yet the music is so perfect for her voice. From Baby I Need Your Loving to the killler Why Do We Call It Love this CD..well...Swings. The true gem of this release is Two Years Too Blue, if ever there was a voice for singing a torch song, Lisa owns it. Put this disc in and let the music take you. I guarantee you won't be disapointed.

I remembered liking Ms. Stansfield's voice, and I knew that I liked swing music so I put this on my Wishlist. Two of my friends got it for me for my birthday, and I can't thank them enough.
I've never been fond of "Mack the Knife", but her version's good. I've never heard of Georgie Fame before, but his "I Thought That's What You Liked About Me" is a great addition to the album. "Martin's Theme" is a lovely bluesy instrumental.
However, the album belongs to Lisa Stansfield. For upbeat, listen to "Watch the Birdie" and "There Ain't Nobody Here but Us Chickens" which are light and funny. How she made the "Chickens" sexy is beyond me. For sensuality, "Two Years Too Blue" can't be beaten.
My only disappointment is "Our Love is Here to Stay." It's one of my favorite songs and after hearing "Too Blue" I was looking forward to a languid and sensual take on this classic. It's done in a more upbeat style which still sounds fantastic, it's just not what it could have been.
Buy this. It's terrific.
