Alive & Swingin? features eleven classic songs recorded in NYC?s Nola Studios and Back Pocket Studios in the mid- ?90s, just before Josi went to London to record his MasterMix debut. Four of the tracks, including "Gotta Be This or That" and the haunting "April in Paris" feature an all-star quartet led by veteran pianist Tony Monte. The additional seven tracks, such as "How Are Ya Fixed For Love" and the hyper-swinging "Smack Dab In The Middle" were recently recorded at Back Pocket Studios with a 16-piece big band led by John Colianni, the bright young pianist and former musical director to Mel Torme.

"Rarely in life do you ever hear or see God given talent, and Christian Josi embodies that. His voice (only getting better with age since his last album) is smoother than ever. His phrasing and personality in his songs shine through with sincerity and at times, a little frivolity. You might be tempted to compare him to Hoboken, NJ's native son, but don't -- he's a crooner for the new millenium. "Fixed for Love" and "Sweet and Lovely" -- two great tracks. You won't be dissapointed in this modern crooner who drinks Budweiser, chain smokes, and wears leather pants."
