The second MAMA Records release from the world-famous Count Basie Orchestra comes on the heels of their Grammy-winning Count Plays Duke. Swing Shift is big-band swing music played with power and precision. Neo-swing bands such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, The Squirrel Nut Zippers and Brian Setzer Orchestra all have their own version of swing. But for bona fide, blues- based swing, Swing Shift is beyond compare.
