Not a big fan of Jazz or Swing, therefor was unsure whether to download this album, but as I've been on a Southside Johnny discovery and recently bought a Tom Waits record, why not!
As a fan got to trust the man, liked the opening track Yesterday Is Here and once the other tracks played out I must admit to enjoying all the tunes, really different from my usual musical genres,
Johnny's rough vocals do enhance the enjoyment as any Louis Armstrong fan will agree, especially on track 6 All The Time In The World.
Tastes of New Orleans on "Tango Till They're Sore" another track converting me to Jazz, good song, then big band swing sound on "New Coat of Paint".
After only one listen, got to rate this high, just so different from my usual tunes, rating 4.25.
