HOLD THE PRESS!!
THE JIVE ACES RELEASED A NEW ALBUM!!!
The Jive Aces, the UK’s No. 1 jive and swing band, have released their brand new album entitled “Life is a Game”.
This new CD features 14 swinging tracks of the hottest and the coolest music around. With 10 originals, including the title track “Life is a Game”; a couple of swinging ballads with full big band backing and strings; a tribute to three of our heroes, Louis Prima, Louis Jordan and Louis Armstrong, called “Three Cats Called Louis”; as well as four classics including Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” and the British wartime favourite, “White Cliffs of Dover”; as well as a rip-roaring version of “Singing in the Rain” featuring the taps of tap dancer extraordinaire, Rusty Frank, we think this album is “the best new swing album for years” (and we’re modest!). The great showmanship and energetic sound of the Jive Aces has been squeezed into an album which has the feel and buzz of a live gig. The beat will get anyone off their seats and moving their feet!
Recorded at Mad Hatter Studios in Hollywood, California, the album was mixed by audio maestro Rik Pekkonen who has mixed albums for B.B. King, Garth Brooks, Ricky Martin and, more recently, Jamie Cullum’s “Twenty Something” album.
Please pass this on to any and all friends, mailing lists, websites, etc.
Cheers, The Jive Aces
