Product Description

Product Description

We want you Join the Swing Patrol! After international success with Tonight Josephine TAPE FIVE now steps forward with some 1940 s inspired flavours! TAPE FIVE with his pacifist attitude has always been inspired by the Great Big Bands from the 30 s and 40 s who entertained the troops with their unique, powerful and cleverly arranged swingin´sounds, put him right in the mood... More Swing less Electro! But why do you even need a category? After a very long time of intense recording, this outstanding TAPE FIVE album has mellow saxophone chord sections, sparkling brass counterparts, all composed in that very old style! The essence is Swing - plus some influences from vintage R&B, 40 s Rock n Roll and Mambo... to give it some variety. Fabulous Swing Kid Whether you need new dance moves from Geraldines Routine , the right soundtrack for driving down Mulholland Drive in your Thunderbird cabrio towards the City of Lights , swaying on a Slow Serenade or having Love Tonite till you need a Pink Lullaby the SWING PATROL takes over, but in a very peaceful way. Swing dancing allowed! Cheers Marlene! Power needs posing - pictured by the style of "Ponymaedchen", a retro modern fashion brand from all-time-hip Berlin, bringing back the look of the G.I. blues. Or dig out Grandpa s clothes and join the SWING PATROL, all you need is some discipline! TAPE FIVE For the SWING PATROL, the fourth album by songwriter/producer Martin Strathausen and his Orchestra, he recruited singers and musicians from ten different countries - from California to Cameron via Brazil, England, Italy, Ukraine, Romania and of course his home base in Germany. With alliances around the world TAPE FIVE is stationed on hundreds of music compilations. An

Most of what could be said of the last album applies here. The quality of the musicianship and of the female vocals remains top notch; the strength of the songs is a bit variable. High spots include Black Cotton Blues, Tintarella di Luna and Love Tonite, all of which sound authentic whilst of course not being. Geraldine's Routine and Bunga Book, are maybe the weak points, but that's just my opinion.

All in all, your feet will tap, and you will find yourself singing along. This album has accompanied me on a cold and soggy drive to and from work all week, and has lifted my spirits every time. This afternoon my wife, who isn't really into anything other than Stevie Wonder, conceded that " I quite like that!", so Swing Patrol clearly has powers to reach even the musically autistic!

Tape Five do it again, blending new and old without sounding twee or contrived. Crisp production highlights the talent of brass and woodwind musicians and well matched vocals. The album flows well from start to finish with references to Glen Miller in Slow Serenade, Louis Prima in Bunga Book and hints of the Bond theme in the baseline of I Spy You. For me the vocals in Tintarella di Luna make this the standout track on an album that really is a worthy follow up to Tonight Josephine.

if you like swinfg music you might love this. I've only played the whole thing once but already have a couple of favourites, but the whole cd bounces along at a good pace, however sometimes it all feels a little like the tracks are running into each other as the beat doesn't change much

If you like swing music and boogie you will probably like this. A fine collection of songs, nice music, good vocals. Great to have on in the car.

Such a fresh new sound for nowadays. Instead of hearin the same old rubbish this comes along and makes me smile everytime. If you like something a little upbeat. 40's with a dash of tabasco go for it.
