The first compilation in the modern swing genre! Featuring the artists who have brought modern swing to the forefront of today's pop culture, this jam-packed set of soon-to-be nouveau classics boasts sizzling performances by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Royal Crown Revue, Flying Neutrinos, Red & the Red Hots and more, and introduces Blue Plate Special with "Night Out."
Swing revivalists only occasionally play music that pays more than passing tribute to Ellington or Goodman. Instead their sounds range from big-band territory to jump blues and rockabilly. Swing This, Baby! surveys 15 of these groups, from platinum and gold sellers (the Brian Setzer Orchestra, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) to more obscure outfits such as the New Morty Show. Quality varies wildly, particularly in the area of vocals, but fans of the new stylists will dig this set. --Rickey WrightSee all Editorial Reviews

There is a good variety of bands, so each track is a new experience. Definitely as good a "sample pack" as you are likely to see.
