"A friend of mine who likes everything about 1940s (music, movies, style, fashion, etc.) introduced me to the music of Tuxedo Junction about six years ago. He bought one of the earliest albums the group recorded way back in the seventies. When I heard their version of my all-time favorite, Glenn Miller's "Moonlight Serenade," I knew I was going to like this group. Their rendition is very unique and matchless. If you love great standards particularly in the Swing Era, then this is the CD to listen to or even to dance to Swing, Hustle and Fox Trot.
The most popular tracks aside from "Moonlight Serenade" are "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Tuxedo Junction." "Take The 'A' Train," "That Old Black Magic," "Begin The Beguine," "Fox Trot" and "Rainy Night In Rio." Special mentions are my top favorites, Hoagy Carmichael/Mitchell Parish composition "Stardust" and Duke Ellington/Bob Russell's "I Didn't Know About You." These two timeless songs were rendered so beautifully that I could listen to these tracks repeatedly.
This is one CD that collectors would be glad to have in their music libraries.
Classy disco for Conniosseurs

"Thank you Amazon for this CD. I remember when the track Chattanooga Choo Choo was released back in 1978 and was a hit single out here and I bought the luminous yellow vinyl album.I Wasnt even aware that it had been released on CD until I did such on Amazon. I absolutely adore and must give credit to the producers for the loving way they have eased these 1940's era tracks into the disco style. The CD came as an absolute surprise as it also included the second album by Tuxedo Junction which I wasnt even aware of...and its standout tracks such as Begin the Beguine, Gotta be football hero etc.Its joyful uplifting and classy disco. Put on your white tie and dance."
