"There is no question that High Altitude Swing is the best of the neo-swing CD's. As a swing dance instructor who has demonstrated lindy hop all over the world, I rely on BTO's smooth style and super-great sound. Any fan of 40's era big band music will undoubtedly love this CD. The brass section is incredible, the percussion establishes very danceable rhythyms, and best of all is Warren's velvet voice... Enjoy!"
A Waste of Time and Money!

"Big Time Operator rehashes the same standards with a lack of pizzaz or energy. They fail to come up to par with even the creativity of most run of the mill big bands. Save your money, and buy the Bob Bregman Big Band's "SWING" album for an awesome reinvention of all of the great standards. High Altitude Swing should be renamed as a Low Flying Flop. It just sucks."
The Best of Neo-Swing

"As a DJ with extensive knowledge of the modern neo-swing bands and the classic bands of the 30s and 40s, I feel confident when I say that BTO is clearly the best of the neo-bands. They have a better sense of what made swing great in the first place and they convey that to you with unity, energy, and a true love and respect for the pioneers. The album pales somewhat compared to their live performances, and they've only gotten better since its release, but "High Altitude Swing" is still a must have and far superior to many better selling "fake swing" CDs. And if BTO inspires some kids to leave their Cherry Poppin' Daddies CDs behind and go looking for some Benny Goodman and Cab Calloway, then they've done their job. Keep up the great work, fellas, and I can't wait for the new CD in summer!"
