JAZZ ON RECORD

The swing and rhythm & blues, which developed alongside bebop in the 1940s, are still being used as a source of inspiration. British pop singer Joe Jackson already revived the festive jump & jive in a distant past. Over here, in the Netherlands, we have (had) several bands which did the same. The name Jump’n Jive from Zwolle comes to mind. And the Amsterdam Bob Color, although they moved onto rock ’n roll. At the time, that was also the direction this music took: swing – jump ’n jive/rhythm & blues – rock ’n roll. But all this aside.

Danny Bacher is a young American singer, who knows his business. You can hear a touch of Michael Bublé in him, but with plenty of drive and lots of swinging. Bacher has a lot of fun performing, and it shows. He draws from the work of Louis Jordan for  the jump and rhythm & blues. He gets ballads from Louis Armstrong, and polite rock ’n roll from Louis Prima, including the medley ‘Just a gigolo/I ain’t got nobody’. Upon first hearing, Bacher uses the possibilities which are given to him a bit politely, but equally lashes out considerably. He’s not only a singer, but also the soprano saxophonist. Bacher moves through the repertoire with ease, aided here and there by the French-American singer Cyrille Aimée. Of course she takes care of ‘La vie en rose’, sung in French. I suspect a lot of dancing goes on during his concerts. This music demands it.

Danny Bacher is a bright new star on the jazz landscape with a distinctive voice and a gift for phrasing. Says The New York Times, “Swing That Music is effortless fun in a tribute to jazz forerunners. It is about making hot music but staying cool, about cutting up while maintaining effortless self-control revealing Bacher to be prodigiously talented.” With his unusually warm, soulful soprano sax sound and a swingin’ “A LIST” band of jazz royalty, you’ve got the next “new classic” album, Swing that Music! Bacher’s dynamic debut pays homage to three iconic fire-brand “Louis’:” Armstrong, Prima and Jordan, with rare gems from each of their original repertoires. Executive and post-produced by world class jazz Producer, Suzi Reynolds, with Grammy-nominated vocalist Roseanna Vitro as Producer, Bacher is set to launch straight onto the stages and into the hearts of music lovers around the world. Vitro confirms, “Danny is reminiscent of ‘triple talent’ icons like Louis Armstrong and Sammy Davis, Jr. He’s a serious jazz musician who holds his own improvising on sax or scatting with the best musicians on the scene…he has a natural flair for comedy and a voice full of soul.”
