Overview

The compilation concept album has been very good to 32 Jazz. Their five bestselling Jazz For... albums - - catering to specific moods and social situations - - had the advantage of presenting high-quality music. With the 1999 release of JAZZ FOR A LAZY DAY, 32 Jazz pulled the plug on the series. Jazz For... is dead, long live JAZZ THAT SWINGS. Actually, SWINGS may not turn into a multivolume series, but it certainly has the potential to. Still drawing on the terrific Atlantic and Muse Records catalogue under their control, 32 Jazz has stocked the new set with meaty selections from hard-core jazz players - - Hank Jones, Cedar Walton, Sonny Criss - - and funky jazzsters including Hank Crawford, David "Fathead" Newman, Richard "Groove" Holmes and Les McCann. Ranging from the Modern Jazz Quartet's breezy "One Note Samba" to Cedar Walton's intense "Naima," there's tsomething for just about every casual jazz listener. What's not to like?

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
Although this is a nice little potpourri of tracks from different artists loosely grouped together around the late '90s swing craze, there's nothing on here that falls into the usual "Sing Sing Sing"-Louis Prima outline. Instead, the collection simply offers tracks that really swing in the truest, finger-snapping sense without being informed by any exercise in zoot-suit nostalgia. Among these 11 tracks are stellar entries from Red Garland, Sonny Criss, David "Fathead" Newman, Hank Crawford, Les McCann, Hank Jones, Cedar Walton, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Eddie Harris, and the Modern Jazz Quartet, all contributing playing that swings in the most obvious way. This compilation lives up to its title.
