Putumayo Presents: Swing Around the World

 
Swing Around the World is certainly an unusual set, featuring modern swing and retro-swing as performed in several countries, most from the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The most interesting selections are the rarest ones, including selections from bands based in Zimbabwe, Mauritius, and Hawaii. The six numbers from American groups are largely unnecessary

Overview

Swing Around the World is certainly an unusual set, featuring modern swing and retro-swing as performed in several countries, most from the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The most interesting selections are the rarest ones, including selections from bands based in Zimbabwe, Mauritius, and Hawaii. The six numbers from American groups are largely unnecessary since several are common, and Clark Terry's "Mumbles" (though a classic of its kind) is a bit out of place. Several of the groups are strongly influenced by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. It is a pity that the complete personnel and dates are not given; however, there are enough interesting and rare performances to make this project of interest.
