This has been one of the first Stereo records my Dad brought from States in 1966! For some time, since I've got my forst CD player, I wondered, whether there are any Swingle Singers' CD releases. Trust me -- this one won't disappoint you. As (I guess) all the others. Swoingle Singers have been one of the REAL artists of rythm and melody, feeling this unique swinging line in the classics, finding a way to show it to the masses. Their music is greatly suitable for any public ocasion and a must in the collection of a real Easy Listening fan!

This is an absolutely charming little compilation of baroque and classical music. It concists mostly of Mozart, then Bach. The cd has only stimulated my thurst for more! Next, I'll purchase the Bach Hits Back CD. The technical adroitness of this group is amazing... and to think: they started out doing what they do only to warm up before concerts!!! The music induces a light, airy, and always delightful atmosphere. A good pick-me-up.

The original Swingle Singers still have it. There have been some re-iterations/reconfigurations of this group since the 60s, but the earliest, original works are really still the best. This original group not only truly swings in a barely post-50s beat style, but their chops and tuning are really spot on. Some of the percussion -- the triangle in one of the fugues, for example --really sparkles. This is *not* just easy listening -- folks who appreciate jazz or classical music or just fine musicianship will enjoy this album, er, CD. The arrangements are quite true to the original, although now configured for voice, bass and percussion. I think even Bach himself would appreciate it for what it is.

FINALLY I'VE FOUND THE ORIGINALS!! I've purchased other Swingles CDs, but they haven't been the ORIGINALS, the Grammy-winners from the 60s. The "others" JUST DON'T HAVE IT!!
This album-PRICELESS!!

Like, I suppose, everybody else, I find myself naturally humming or whistling my favorite tunes, under the shower, cooking or washing the dishes, gardening, walking on the street from one place to the other, without even realizing it. And this is probably as natural to mankind as breathing.

The Swingle Singers are to that what Picasso is to your three-year old's drawings. Since their first "Jazz Sebastian Bach" album in 1963, in whatever line-up of singers (the group is still in existence, although the original members, including the group's founder and leader Ward Swingle, are long gone; but Swingle still acts as musical advisor and arranger), they've developed a unique and fabulously entertaining approach to the classics, giving an irresistible pizzazz to compositions you thought you knew from inside out.

This CD collates the original group's second and third albums, both for Philips: "Going Baroque" in 1964 (subtitled on the original French release "De Bach aux Baroques") and "Anyone for Mozart?" in 1965 (aka "Swinging Mozart" in France). LPs had short timings in those days, remember? The "Baroque" LP was 24:30 and the Mozart 28 minutes - making it incomprehensible and really unjustifiable that for the reissue Philips should have left out one track from the Baroque LP, the Allegro from Haendel's Concerto Grosso Op. 6 in A-flat, for a TT that, at 50 minutes, is relatively stingy, and would still have been if the track has been included. But it is still twice as good, time-wise, as the recent reissues from Emarcy, a branch of Philips (referenced on this website as Philips Import), which consist of the original albums "straight":

I love this group. They make classical music (which I enjoy anyway) fun for people of all ages. My 2 year-old daughter really like this CD.
