Album Notes
A rare occasion of live recording performed with The Milwaukee Jazz Orchestra makes an exuberant splash! Curt Hanrahan, Director of Jazz Studies at UWM, utilized Milwaukee area musicians and also invited his son, Tim Hanrahan on bass, and brother, Warren Hanrahan on drums, to help create an impromptu setting of swingin' excellence! This was a sight reading/recording session of pure emotion and creativity!!. Your ears will dance as you hear the musical sensitivity and power pouring out of each unique soul, individually and collectively!! Curt Hanrahan deserves numerous accolades, not only for his exceptional efforts in music education and improvisation, but in ALL things musical!!! He is an unsung force behind this recording and many others, and truly deserves recognition for his pure genius!!! Hear and delight in, "Welcome to Swingsville"!!! Hang on, and y'all have FUN!!!

Exciting and fresh
Each musician on this project is a master of their instrument, and poured their heart into this recording, as evident in every note. Not-so-common standards are combined with inventive originals for a great blend of style. Enjoy "After You've Gone" as you never heard it and then ride the adventurous "Caravan" followed by a soulful journey to "Seattle". Check out the amazing bass solo in "Blues In C'....Stay awhile in Swingsville, you won't regret it.

Jazz at it's best!
Welcome to Swingsville is a perfect blend of toe tapping, head bobbing, soul reaching audio perfection. I place my head phones on my head and feel lost in the music as I feel the energy coming from every note!
