Swingadelic

Swingadelic began in 1998 as the neo-swing movement was cresting. Bassist Dave Post gathered his jazz & blues playing pals together to play engagements at New York City's Supper Club, Swing 46 and Windows On The World. As the swing scene waned the band turned to dances, concerts, festivals, schools and private engagements to keep active. Swingadelic has performed at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing, NJPAC, and at many festivals, including Bele Chere (Ashville NC), MusikFest (Allentown PA) the CD 109 Jazz & Blues Festival (Red Bank, NJ) and the sanofi-aventis JazzFest (Madison NJ). The band plays about 100 dates per year and has traveled from Maine to Atlanta

Swingadelic: Bluesville

Read "Bluesville" reviewed by Jack Bowers


If you're partial to music that is sunny and freewheeling and almost commands a smile, you should have no trouble warming to Bluesville, the eighth recording by New Jersey-based Swingadelic, now twenty-two years old and counting. As its name implies, the orchestra (more often than not a mini-big band a dozen or so strong) re-creates an ...

Swingadelic: Mercerville

Read "Mercerville" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Swingadelic loves a good tribute. This little big band's first date for Zoho was all about Duke--Pearson, not Ellington--and its second set on that imprint focused on the music of New Orleans icon Allen Toussaint. Now the group has set its sights on another singular figure, taking a trip to Johnny Mercer country with positive results. ...

Swingadelic: Toussaintville

Read "Toussaintville" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


It's tempting to say that the great Allen Toussaint is a musical phoenix who rose out of the ashes of a Katrina-ravaged New Orleans, but that's not really true. Toussaint wasn't reborn when his city was in ruins; people just started to wake up and take notice of him again in the wake of that tragedy. ...

Divertente. È questo il primo aggettivo che salta in mente dopo aver ascoltato le dieci tracce di The Other Duke - Tribute to Duke Pearson, il nuovo lavoro firmato Swingadelic. Questo perché la musica del pianista e compositore Duke Pearson, qui omaggiata in maniera molto fedele ai tratti originali, porta dentro di sé una vitalità contagiosa ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
