Introducing the Rhythm Club All-Stars . . . a brand new, super swingin collective specializing in jazz from the 1920s and \'30s. True to it's name, the RCAS is an all-star aggregation that features some of the top professionals on the Southern California scene. Led by internationally renowned drummer Daniel Glass (Royal Crown Revue, Bette Midler, Gene Simmons), the RCAS also include guitar wizard and vocalist John Reynolds (Cab Calloway, Janet Klein), bassist John Hatton (Brian Setzer Orchestra), and horn master Corey Gemme (Johnny Crawford, High Sierra Jazz Band) on cornet and trombone. Combining vintage instruments and a classic look with a period-perfect sound that swings like crazy, the Rhythm Club All-Stars offer an authentic, high energy retro experience that has quickly become a favorite among Los Angeles area swing dancers and corporate clients alike. The band\'s debut CD features a wide variety of classics, from the familiar (\'Honeysuckle Rose,\' \'Blue Skies\') to the obscure (\'Old Joe\'s Hittin\' the Jug,\' \'Digga Digga Doo\'). But it\'s the band\'s hard swingin\' approach and unique arrangements that bring new life to this material. Check out the moody cadence of \'Caravan,\' the fiery brushwork on \'Jeepers Creepers\' or the virtuosic banjo playing on \'Digga Digga Doo\' and you\'ll find yourself screaming for more. This is one disc not to be missed!
