About the Album
Taken from their Bandcamp page
“The Brooks Prumo Orchestra was created for swing dancing”
For me, big band music from the Swing Era is my favorite music for swing dancing.
I wanted to put out an album only of tunes that were either original compositions, original arrangements, or remakes of tracks where the original version did not have a good recording.
Please take a look at the inside liner notes for info about each track. Hopefully this release is a positive contribution to the world of swing music and swing dancing!
In addition to the tracks themselves, I also wanted to hit a wide range of tempos for dancing. This album has songs at approximately the following tempos:
235, 230, 225, 210, 190, 180, 175, 160, 155, 145, 140, 135, and 125 beats per minute
Every single song on this recording holds a special place in my heart. I truly hope you enjoy it and thank you for your support!
