Album Notes
Bryan Cumming grew up in Georgia in a musical family, listening to swing music his parents loved, and singing harmony on Beatles songs. His father played sax and gathered musicians to play big band charts, so jazz was a natural part of the home environment. Records by Stan Getz and Junior Walker helped inspire Bryan to pursue the sound of the saxophone, which he played in the U.S. Army before going on the road as a professional musician (also playing bass, guitar, cornet, etc.)

He played with Martin Mull, recording in New York, before moving to Los Angeles, where he played sessions and toured with artists such as David Soul, Maria Muldaur, Al Jarreau, Anne Murray and Ohio Players. As a founding member of Billy Vera and The Beaters, he participated in the Tokyo Music Festival and played on the number one record "At This Moment."

Bryan moved to Nashville in 1988, establishing a home studio for producing independent artists. He toured with K.T. Oslin and Cleve Francis, and wrote music for the Nashvile Shakespeare Festival.

He released a solo album in 2004, "A Song Is A Dangerous Thing," which included several original swing songs.

In 2016 he recorded twenty songs with an acoustic jazz quartet, live in the studio, with no overdubs, effects, or vocal harmonies. Bryan sang and played guitar and sang, while Kelli Cox played piano, John Vogt bass and Adam Mormolstein drums. Ten songs from those sessions were released in 2017 as "Come Out Swinging."

"Bellwether Serenade" is among the songs from those sessions which comprise a second swing album yet to be released.
