 Disappointing September 19, 2014 By C. Hedman (Saint Paul, MN) See All My Reviews "I ordered this disc thinking it would contain my fondly remembered Swingle Singers records from the 60's. Sadly, this does not seem to be the case. Instead of the non-verbal jazzy renditions, this disc mostly contains verbal singing - not what I wanted to hear. The disc will join the ranks of "never listen to again" in my CD collection, awaiting disposal to a used CD store or the local dump." Report Abuse
 Masterful! September 19, 2014 By Robert H. (Philadelphia, PA) See All My Reviews "It's been a number of years since I last heard The Swingle Singers, so when this album showed up in ArkivMusic's rotation I jumped. I was not disappointed. This is an absolutely stunning effort -- a wonderful program of live performance tracks mixed with studio recordings -- all masterfully arranged and exquisitely performed with incredible artistry. Very, highly recommended." Report Abuse
