Read "Swingin'" reviewed by Jack Bowers


This is guitarist Mark Elf’s seventh album, and the first six have been a chart–topping best–sellers. There are two reasons for this: (1) Elf, bless his entrepreneurial heart, does almost everything to ensure the albums’ success short of selling them door–to–door (and he’d probably do that too if he had to); and (2), he’s a wonderful ...
