Solid musicians all, BBVD strut their plentiful chops over mahvelous arrangements that mix Louis Prima with Gene Krupa and a little Rudy Vallee. On the album opener, "Big and Bad," the band unleashes exhilarating solos, smart riffs, and charged rhythmic punches. But beyond their stock-in-trade retro-swing assault, THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE finds BBVD carousing with calypso "I Wanna Be Like You", island-music sendups "Who's That Creepin?", and zoot-suit riots "I'm Not Sleeping".

In addition to the sound and the fury, however, the band tries on a couple of easygoing ballads, giving singer Scotty Morris a chance to get sentimental. Elsewhere, BBVD offer a respite from the brash, brassy swing zone with a cover of "Ol' MacDonald" and the sweetly laid back originals "Still in Love with You," "Sleep Tight," and "Some Things." Seems an old daddy can learn new tricks after all.
