Album Notes
Girls From Mars (Wendi Bourne, Lauren Janson & Annie Patterson) have been singing Jazz & Swing for over 30 years. Their much anticipated CD, Return to Planet Swing, is now available here! Produced by Glenn Barratt & Wendi Bourne and recorded at 2x Grammy award winning engineer/producer Glenn Barratt's Morning Star Studios. Barratt captures perfectly the deep, swingin' groove that has become the band's hallmark.

Their previous CD, "Planet Swing" has been selling around the world for the past decade, loved by those who appreciate old swing music that is not "schmaltzed up". The Girls call it "Cave Man Jazz". On both "Planet Swing" and "Return to Planet Swing", a three or four part rhythm section holds down the groove and sets up the pocket - the vocals deepen the pocket. Great instrumental soloists are the "cherry on top" !

The Martians are accompanied by some of the best in the business on this record: Ralph Gordon - bass, Howard Sitron - trumpet, Myles Rothwell and Matt Scarano - drums, Dave Posmontier - piano, Tom Mitchell - guitar, Ron Kerber - Sax and the list goes on. The Girls From Mars' stellar three part harmony can be heard on such tracks as Let Me Off Uptown, Hit That Jive Jack, Blue Drag, Take the A Train, Sunny Side of the Street and more.

Donna Howell

well crafted swing and diverse selection
I’ve loved The Girls from Mars for years and have gotten so much airplay from the songs on the original Planet Swing album I couldn’t wait for another (I produce a dance music show on Public Radio). I was impressed by the diverse song selection, some of which I remembered as classics, and some I never heard before. And such a great range of styles from jump bluesy to Latiny to big band to smoky. Wendi Bourne’s original Rhythm Town could be dropped right into an Andrews Sisters' album and few would know the difference. You can tell The Girls from Mars have been at it for a while; they’ve absolutely mastered their craft, tight harmonies, fine production. These gals are inspiring a whole new generation of swingers while they help preserve the music and dance of the Swing Era. They are immersed in the art form and will suck you right into the middle of it if you buy this album. Buy it for drivin' down the road or for dancing in the kitchen. My track picks: nice versions of Blue Drag and Drum boogie and the smoky version of Meet me with your Black Drawers On, but I like them all!

Destined for an appearance on A Prarie Home Companion
The vocal harmonies and musicianship on this album portends an appearance on "A Prairie Home Companion". The tunes are instrumentally tight and the vocals evoke memories of the Swing Bands from 70 years ago. Their cover of "Take The ""A"" Train will bring a smile to your lips and an infectious toe tapping to your stride. Get on board ("Choo, Choo, Choo") for "The Girls From Mars" trip to Rhythm Town!

Fabulous swingin' vocals!
This album packs a punch, stupendous jazzy and blues vocals with gorgeous harmonies. Great variety of songs with solid grooves and soaring instrumental solos. These Girls from Mars know how to deliver the Swing! Great gift for any lover of music or dancing.
