Overview

The legendary Chicago-based tune showcase and dinner club House of Blues has its own reputable record label, known to produce and distribute the likes of such disparate party pals as Jerry Garcia and James Belushi. This next wave to a departing decade is a compilation featuring hand-selected HOB crowd pleasers -- this time focusing on the resurgence of big-band '90s-style "swing" music to put your party in a roll-up-the-rug mood. Although purists will contest to the core the validity of neo-swing -- many say it just doesn't "swing" -- it's hard to argue with the finger-poppin' dance beat that gets fellas to dress real doggone swell, at least. Inspiring performances include the horn-heavy "Planet Jive," by the Jive Aces, Willie Nelson's hit "Blue Skies" covered by Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers (who wouldn't want to at least see a band with a name like that?), the plucky "Chicken Wings," by the Blues Jumpers, and the wickedly good fun "Feelin' Kinda Lucky" by Big Sandy & His Fly Right Boys. There's even a little something for the cool kids in the house with the Swingin' Deacons' "Conjunction Junction" from TV's timeless Schoolhouse Rock. Or maybe that's just more swingin' nostalgia for you.
