Swing revivalists only occasionally play music that pays more than passing tribute to Ellington or Goodman. Instead their sounds range from big-band territory to jump blues and rockabilly. Swing This, Baby! surveys 15 of these groups, from platinum and gold sellers (the Brian Setzer Orchestra, the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) to more obscure outfits such as the New Morty Show. Quality varies wildly, particularly in the area of vocals, but fans of the new stylists will dig this set. --Rickey Wright

Great collection of 90s swing, that aren't the overplayed ones. Added bonus - good tempo if you are into swing dancing or know Lindy Hop!
This is the best introduction to the modern swing movement
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I am a swing dance teacher at a local club in town and a swing DJ. Swing this baby includes all the best swing band of the 90's. Pay close attention to Blue Plate, and Royal Crown. Anyone interested in the swing scene should buy this album. Also note that it was produced in conjunction with Swing Time Magazine the leading source for swingers."
SMOKIN' RETRO SWING SAMPLER

"Man, what's with all the 4 and 3 star reviews, cats? When you're looking for good RETRO SWING, you have to wade through a lot of mediocre albums. This is one of the best RETRO SWING samplers you can find. Perfect for a swing party because every cut just smokes. THIS IS FIVE STARS, TRUST ME.
Buy it used from an Amazon Seller.
What happened to most of these guys? BRING BACK RETRO SWING!! This craze died out way too soon."
