Biography

Brian Setzer is one of those wild geniuses who keeps the Earth properly spinning on its axis – a consistent institution who you can count on while pretty much everything else comes and goes. If nothing else, he might be saving American history from the scorch of its own warped magnifying glass memory. We’ve screwed up the 50’s – reduced it into one giant goof cartoon ...

If you were looking at this as any sort of comparison to the original classical pieces and particularly if you have found offence, I'm afraid you're simply, and egregiously, missing the point. Brian Setzer has no intention of being an inheritor of Mozart's or Tchaikovsky's, but of that great 20th century, the late and long lamentedSpike Jones & His City Slickers. This album is a total riot, a hoot from start to finish. I only found it quite by accident, searching on spotify for something else (we Brits are far too witless to appreciate this sort of genius on a mass basis). It's also peerlessly performed (there is no better electric guitarist on the planet than Brian Setzer and the band is sublime) and the arrangements are simply out of this world. I'm listening to it on spotify now, and can't help laughing out loud. Brilliant; utterly brilliant.

We knew Setzer was something special when, as a 17 year old ingenue, he made dead-eye Eddie Cochrane and Gene Vincent rockabilly reproductions in the late seventies - amazing enough - and convinced the new wave post-punks to dig it - extraordinary - and this, very different, album only serves to show how, even so, we were totally under-rating him.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Instant Classic 28 Sep 2007
By R. Neil
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't quite sure what to expect of this release. I have got to say as a fan of Mr Setzer's other work this stands among his best. Brian Setzer has once more got hold of the rule book and ripped it to shreds.This album rocks and swings like nothing i've heard before. Most of the album is instrumental with a couple of vocal tracks "One More Night With You" and "Honey Man" but that doesn't spoil the fun. You won't believe that one mans fingers can move so fast. How could i sum up this album, classic swing or swinging classics it's just great music from the best big band around. Every player on this album sounds like they had a lot of fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars IF ONLY.... 27 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
...all the songs on this cd were as rockin' as 'Take a break guys' (God rest ye Merry Gentleman). Yes, you did read that right...Brian does an amazing instrumental take on this seasonal carol. 4.30 minutes of stunning high pitched guitar, a 70's feel with echoing whammy pedal (or whatever you call it) with proper rock drums and not too much horns, and you have the highlight of an interestingly varied classical/big band album. This should be the first track not the last! The only other good tunes for me are - 'one more night with you' complete with Setzer and Vixen vocals, this is an adaptation of Grieg's 'Hall of the mountain king' and deserves to be played over and over again as it's very addictive and swingy. A true catchy tune that Setzer has as usual made better that the original!
And last but not least 'For Lisa' - (Beethoven's Fur Elise) which shows a lighter side with Setzer on acustic guitar and with a nice smooth drum beat and violin! Quiet a change from the constant horns and trumpets that swamp the rest of the cd. Songs like 'Take the 5th' and 'Wolfgang's big night out' may show off the Brian Setzer Orchestra's qualities as great musicians but to me this is not the sound i want from a Brian Setzer record. This is classical with lots of big band on top of it! Sure Brian does some great jazz licks on these songs, but it's mainly the Orchestra that take centre stage. The record is worth getting for the three tracks mentioned but compared with say 'Ignition' 'Vavoom!' or 'The Dirty Boogie' it just is too classical for me. I love the BSO when their rockin' like 'The House is Rockin' from the cd(Guitar Slinger) OR 'Drive like Lightnin''from (Vavoom!) But this has a happy 'Carry On' films style to it and if those three songs weren't as good as they are...
