Small group swing is alive and well in 2016. Here's a group out of Europe which is truly all over the place in the swing idiom. The co-leaders of the quartet are trumpeter and occasional vocalist Colin T. Dawson and alto sax man Chris Hopkins. Rounding out the quartet are Bernd Lhotzky on piano and celesta and Oliver Mewes, drums. Their bill of fare ranges from J.S. Bach to James P. Johnson; from Scott Joplin to Cole Porter; from Sidney Bechet to Glenn Miller to Rodgers & Hart and lots more. Sixteen tunes in all, many of which are familiar to you. And all of which are presented with style, swing and savoir-faire.
