Review: This is a collection of Swing tunes from 2006 Sweet Adelines International Chorus winners The Scottsdale Chorus, directed by Lori Lyford. We have a special place in our hearts for the Swing Era, and the Chorus truly does it justice on songs like "Singin' With The Big Bands," "Embraceable You," "In The Mood," "Rhythm Medley," "Jump Shout Boogie," Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean A Thing," "Original Dixieland One-Step," "Lies/Times Medley," "Saxophone Man" and "Where Does the Time Go." The Scottsdale Chorus is all about rich harmonies, spirited singing, great arrangements and classic material - what's not to like?
