About The Album
Taken from their bandcamp profile:
This album is my first Swing genre album and is packed with 10 unique original Swing songs! I composed and arranged all of these songs myself.
This music was conceived and created for a dancing audience, particularly the large group of dancers known as “Swing dancers.” In my mind, this distinction also includes those who dance Balboa, Blues, Lindy Hop or any other genre of dance that may fall under the umbrella term of Swing dancing. The music on “Head to Head” runs the gamut of these various dance styles, and contains a variety of moods/grooves for various settings.
It is an honour and privilege to have recorded this music with some of my favourite musicians, who are all versatile and accomplished in their own rights.
Noah Hocker – Trumpet, Compositions
Chris Lewis – Tenor Saxophone
St. Clair Simmons – Trombone
Brennen Ernst – Guitar
Solomon Douglas – Piano
Jen Hodge – Bass
Steve Tolnay – Drums
