THE SWING LEGACY REVIEWS

“I like this Massachusetts band. They play authentic swing, and they play it well. I particularly like the female vocalist, Carol Akerson — she’s expressive, on key, and her singing suits this style of music. The song selection is refreshing, and the arrangements are delightful.”
— Ron Bloom - Ron’s Swing CD Reviews

 “I listened to every cut, and I couldn’t find one that I wouldn’t play on the air. They are all fabulous — the arrangements, vocals, everything. I like your salute to Fats on a couple. This is one of the greatest swing/big-band CDs out there, and you will get a lot of air play from me. You have one fine band!”
— Jim Stone - Big Band Swing - WLNZ Radio

“This is the second CD by an extraordinary swing band, the likes of
which don’t often record (or hardly even exist) anymore, it seems. If
you are sick and tired of the junk that is being passed off as jazz
these days, you definitely need this disc to restore your faith.
Especially so if you revere the small jump bands of the thirties and
forties. If you enjoy dancing, you’ll groove on this CD all the more…”
