Eric Swan (aka Roger Roger). A library legend and one of the greatest composers to ever do it, in my opinion. He doesn't disappoint with this effort, and as expected delivers another great listening experience from start to finish. With a touch of class, Roger crafts some fine "early jazz" that sounds like it came straight from the 1920s! You can tell this legend obviously did his homework about this era, as the music sounds period appropriate and accurate, yet with an ever-so-subtle touch of modernness. Through the exploration of this era, Roger mesmerizes us with care-free and bouncy grooves that will make you seriously move about in your seat, all the while his unique and trademark style shines through vividly on each track. Bravo, Roger!

I highly recommend this LP for fans of early jazz and 1920s and '30s music, as well as lovers of groovy, danceable jazz and library music. 5 out of 5!
