Album Notes
This Swing CD was recorded live at the Village Tavern in Long Grove, IL., a Northwest suburb of Chicago, where the Neo-Passé Swing Quintet performed there for many years. They have since abandoned jazz. This CD was recorded between February and June of 2001.

Playing in the spirit of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, with a sprinkling of the 60s thrown in for good measure, the group's rhythm section is comprised of Piano, Acoustic upright bass, Drums, and Acoustic rhythm guitar.

Although, because of their change of entertainment policy, and the band is no longer there, the flavor of the evening still remains intact.

Six of the tracks feature Eric Schneider, an Earl Hines and Count Basie alumnus, on Tenor, Alto and Soprano saxes, and clarinet.

Three tracks have the long time Chicagoland reed legend, Stu Genovese, whose insightful approach to the art has been heartally received and accepted even beyond the shores of the U.S. Stu shared the stage with some of the greats in jazz including Oscar Peterson.

Three more show the swing side of Kim Cusack, long associated with the Salty Dogs Dixieland band, on clarinet.

The final three tracks have the internationally renown Russ Phillips exhibiting his amazing prowess on trombone. He has several CDs of his own available in your local record store.

Leader and guitarist Ted Butterman has assembled a group of players dedicated to the genre but who do not intentionally copy the founding fathers. As an aside, Ted changes hats in the summer, plays trumpet, and leads the Chicago Cubs Dixieland Band and who are now in their twenty fourth year at "The Friendly Confines". Information about the other performers can be found in the liner notes, as well as on the web site www.dixieswing.com

Released in December of 2001, reviews in the local media have been excellent and sales are brisk. Great review in the International Association of Jazz Record Collectors Journal! It is an album that you will enjoy listening to often and that you could well afford to have in your collection.

Live at The Village Tavern
favorite record. These guys are good and play things I know.

Phillip LeMignon

A must for any collection. A generous portion of swinging jazz. Get one before they're all gone.

Bill Nicholson

Great representation of the swing era. Lots of tension mixed with sensitivity. G
GREAT CD. Well recorded, 73 minutes of hard swinging swing jazz mixed with sophisticated renderings of ballads, all of the '30s, '40s, and some '50s. No weak sisters here regarding the musicians.
