4.0 out of 5 stars Ethno-swing 7 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
This beautiful exercise in nostalgia is full of excellent swing era singing by Maxine Sullivan, an African American singer of clear voice and precise delivarance, who became popular with some sort of ethnic swing, or jazz versions of "Loch Lomond" (a Scottish tune) and other folk-based (actually - European folk) songs. In this sense, from the popular music viewpoint this is an excellent album, technologically updated revision of 20 years old music. An excercise of nostalgia and an excellent pop album at the same time, this might ACTUALLY be of interest to wider audiences who like Diana krall, Norah Jones, Michael Buble, Dave Koz or the veteran singer Tony Bennett.
Excellent back-up band, the recreation of John Kirby's popular swing band, has some quite respectable musicians - Charlie Shavers (tp), today probably most famous for his trumpet battles with Roy Eldridge, Buster Bailey (cl), a great swing musician who also played well with Henry Red Allen, Russel Procope (as), best known for his work with Duke Ellington, excellent pianists Billy Kyle (p) or Dick Hyman (piano, harpsichord, organ), etc.
This is very good buck-up for any singer (to say the least), it's just that I was hoping for more solos, more space for their distinctive jazz talents. If I was giving it stars as an jazz album, "Flow Gently..." wouldn't fare well, but it wouldn't be fair, since it is basically swing oriented pop.
ALSO, when they play jazz (like on tracks 1, 6 and 11) it is in the tradition of "mature" and polished swing Artie Shaw's Grammercy Five was famous for...

Which is also OK, unless one prefers Basie's small groups of the era, Benny Goodman's best trio and quartet live recordings, or Teddy Wilson's collaborations with Billie Holiday (AND Lester Young, Buck Clayton, Roy Eldridge, Benny Goodman, Ben Webster and others).

I'm not giving it 5 stars just as a simbol of slight personal disappointment; if you're NOT a jazz fanatic, you'll be fine with this CD.
And, just to justify only 4 stars, I must say that putting in at least some liner notes would have been a good idea. Apparently, it isn't a part of this idea of selling CD-R created copies on demand.
So, there you go.

p.s.
Jack Walker has a few nostalgic vocal comments on first two tracks and in the end. I'd blattantly lied if I said I knew who he is, since he speaks in the first person ("we had a singer with us"). Was he the host of the radio programe?

5.0 out of 5 stars Flow Gently, Sweet Rhythm 26 Jan 2011
By B. Parr - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm listening now to the lovely Maxine Sulivan singing her signature song "Loch Lomond" and the smooth rhythm of the band recreating John Kirby's sweet sound. I can't begin to say how thrilled I am to find this. For you see, this album saved my emotional life when I was a 14 year old girl some 52 years ago. I must have played this album a thousand times each time loving it more and more. Just a cast off from one of my stepfather's friend who was cleaning out some albums (I got a stack of jazz and blues albums), this one became my most treasured. If you love the voice of a young Ella, thrill to Billie Holiday songs, you will love this album. Just as amazing now as it was then, these not as well remembered musicians, are first rate and not to be missed.

2.0 out of 5 stars You'll never need cheese again! 13 Jan 2013
By Vince Cabrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Buy this album and you'll never need to buy cheese again. Awful, misguided collection of drecky covers that sounds incredibly dated. Made at a time when people probably weren't as aware of the original music and preferred the elevator music version. Ultra cheesy, Disney-ish narrator on tracks. On the positive side, Maxine Sullivan could sing, and her version of Loch Lomond is good, but you can find it in heaps of other and better anthologies (Period's Jazz Digest comes to mind). Charlie Shavers was also good, the better parts of this record are when you get the band just... playing.
