Pre-Release CD Review: "Toussaintville" By Swingadelic

Swingadelic is a swing band that is also referred to as a repertoire band.  They cover outstanding musical talents by doing tribute recordings that are first class.  On their new CD, "Toussaintville" Singadelic has chosen to honor the New Orleans performer, composer, arranger, producer, Allen Toussaint who celebrates his 75th birthday on January 11, 2013. The musicians involved with the recording of this new CD all have strong backgrounds in Jazz, Blues, Country, Rock'n'Roll and Latin Music.

Swingadelic really does swing!  The songs they perform on this CD are great classic Toussaint tunes, but the arrangements and big band sound give them a brand new feel. This CD honors the sounds and spirits of the music of New Orleans and brings it to a higher level. What a treat for lovers of swing bands that Swingadelic is still rolling out great CDs like "Toussaintville".

The release date for "Toussaintville" is May 14, 2013, and I strongly recommend you check out this great new swing band CD.
