Come Out Swinging by Bryan Cumming

I have been a fan of swing music for a long time whether it is Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, Asleep at the Wheel or my newest swing favorite Bryan Cumming.  The February 2017 album Come Out Swinging caught my attention right away.  This album has a mixture of Big Band Swing and Texas Swing. I was wondering, would this album be considered as Tennessee Swing? There are some standards on this album, such as Straighten Up And Fly Right (made famous by Nat King Cole), Blue Skies (made famous by Willie Nelson) and It Had To Be You (made famous by Paul Whiteman and others). There are also two originals written by Bryan, the title track Come Out Swinging and End Of The Day. Also, he co-wrote the songs Hungry Jack and Why Can’t I Have You. Other notable tracks on the album were Sweet Sue and Just You.  This album is well performed, recorded and produced.  I highly recommend this album to anyone’s swing library.
