In Full Swing

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
By now it’s pretty obvious that Mark O’Connor can play just about anything -- from classical to country, pop, and other assorted musical genres. The violinist's appearances on over 450 albums prove how versatile he is. It’s also obvious though that he harbors a soft spot for the Gypsy swing music made famous in the 1930s by violinist Stephane Grappelli and guitarist Django Reinhardt with their Hot Club of France ensemble. Leading a compact trio, featuring Frank Vignola on guitar and Jon Burr on bass, O’Connor also brings in two high-profile guests --trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and singer Jane Monheit -- to assist him in exploring music inspired by his heroes.

By now it’s pretty obvious that Mark O’Connor can play just about anything -- from classical to country, pop, and other assorted musical genres. The violinist's appearances on over 450 albums prove how versatile he is. It’s also obvious though that he harbors a soft spot for the Gypsy swing music made famous in the 1930s by violinist Stephane Grappelli and guitarist Django Reinhardt with their Hot Club of France ensemble. Leading a compact trio, featuring Frank Vignola on guitar and Jon Burr on bass, O’Connor also brings in two high-profile guests --trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and singer Jane Monheit -- to assist him in exploring music inspired by his heroes. Everyone rises to the occasion. Sweetness and smoke coexist when O’Connor puts bow to instrument; he brings out the poetry in tunes like “Misty” and “As Time Goes By” and goes into overdrive on such workouts as “Tiger Rag” and “Limehouse Blues.” Vignola and Marsalis are right with him, while Burr holds down the fort with consummate style. Monheit also fits in well, sounding appropriately chirpy (“Honeysuckle Rose”) or mellow (“Misty”) when called for. O’Connor, for his part, may be a jack of all trades, but this album firmly establishes that he’s certainly a master of swinging jazz.
All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Mark O'Connor's second CD with his Hot Swing Trio is more than just a salute to the late, legendary jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli; it firmly establishes as him as a bona fide jazz violin virtuoso, thanks to being distributed by a major label this time around. The capable guitarist Frank Vignola plays gypsy swing à la Django Reinhardt without sounding like a clone; bassist Jon Burr, who spent a decade as a member of Grappelli's rhythm section in his last years, provides a perfect match for his two bandmates. Each member of the trio contributed originals to the session. O'Connor's "In Full Swing" is absolutely breathtaking, while it is fun imagining how Grappelli and Reinhardt might have interpreted his enticing "Stephane and Django." Burr's pulsating "Three for All" and Vignola's lyrical "A Beautiful Friendship" are also worthwhile songs. The remaining selections all come from the repertoire of either Grappelli or the Grappelli-Reinhardt partnership, with occasional guest appearances by Wynton Marsalis and singer Jane Monheit. There are plenty of fireworks in the trio's wild ride through "Limehouse Blues" which, of course, isn't a blues at all. The high-flying duo introduction to "Tiger Rag" by O'Connor and Marsalis is a meeting of two masters. Monheit's interpretations of "Misty" and "As Time Goes By" are merely average, and she doesn't loosen up enough to appreciate the fun within Fats Waller's "Honeysuckle Rose," though Marsalis makes up for her shortcomings. In any case, Mark O'Connor's Hot Swing Trio provide first-rate swing all by themselves, so adding guests isn't really necessary.

    REally Swings

    This CD is just what you need to warm up a cold winter night. The addition of Wynton and Jane take this music into a smokey nightclub of yesterday....and I can't say enough about the playing of Mark and his trio....It's a CD you'll wish would go on all night, along with the dry martini...
