New York's Swingadelic Visits "Bluesville," While Julio Botti Does The "Tango" With His Sax
One of New York City's premier swing orchestras, Swingadelic is back with their fourth studio album titled "Bluesville." It features fourteen tracks that cover some of the biggest names in music like Duke Ellington, Ray Charles and Willie Dixon. The album begins (and ends) with the undeniably smooth, big band jazz of "The Late, Late Show," before adding a swinging melody to the blues of "I Love The Life I Live." The classic Ray Charles shuffle of "Mary Ann" is present in Swingadelic's version of the song, while continuing their new album with the classic boogie-woogie style of Mose Allison's "Parchman Farm." Swingadelic get deeper into the blues with the steady rhythm of "Lonely Avenue," before adding a little Latin flair into the vibe of "El Blues Esa Mujer." The orchestra wrap up their new album with the energetic, up-tempo instrumental "Riff'n On McGriff'n" and the final blues romp of "You're Humbuggin' Me."

Saxophonist extraordinaire Julio Botti recently released his new studio album titled "Pure Tango." It is his fourth release on the Zoho label and his first with pianist Matias Lanfranco, who helped bring out that tango vibe to Botti's more modern jazz sound. The new eleven track release begins with the swinging rhythm of "Taquito Militar," before introducing vocalist Maria Jose Rojas to lend her talents to the tempo changes of "Cualquiera De Estas Noches." Botti and Lanfranco each get their moment in the spotlight during the gentle ballad "El Dia Que Me Quieras." The pace picks back up with the Latin flair of "Oro Y Plata," before Julio Botti closes out his new album with the slow-burning passion of "Zamba Del Chaguanco" and the uplifting, hopeful melody of "Nunca Tuvo Novio."
