You have to admire New York Voices' diversity -- this is a jazz vocal group that has embraced everything from modal post-bop and Brazilian jazz to Stevie Wonder pearls. And how many artists have devoted an entire album to jazz interpretations of Paul Simon tunes? Not everything the Voices have recorded is great, but more often than not, their sense of adventure and open-mindedness have served them well. After paying tribute to pop-rocker Simon in 1997, the Voices make big band music the main focus of Sing, Sing, Sing. This time, they are backed by a big band and turn their attention to gems associated with swing icons like Benny Goodman ("Sing, Sing, Sing," "Don't Be That Way"), Duke Ellington ("In A Mellow Tone"), Woody Herman ("Early Autumn"), and Artie Shaw ("Stardust"). Although many of these classics came out of the Swing Era, Sing, Sing, Sing also has its share of post-World War II gems. Ralph Burns' lovely "Early Autumn" is a gem that Herman recorded in 1948, when he was exploring bop with his Second Herd and the Four Brothers. And "Orange Colored Sky," which was a major hit for Nat "King" Cole in 1950, is quite relevant to the CD's big band theme because Cole recorded it with the Stan Kenton Orchestra. This CD is a major departure from the Voices' Simon tribute, but considering how flexible they have been, it isn't surprising that they would do something completely different this time. Sing, Sing, Sing is a rewarding addition to their catalogue.

As a long-time fan of the New York Voices, I find myself singing along with nastalgic memories of joy and love for this superb vocal jazz ensemble. A swingin' group of soloists who always leave us wanting more of that beautifully blended vocal sound.

They¿re singin¿ and they¿re swingin¿! They¿re NEW YORK VOICES and they¿re back at last! Equally masterful at ultra-tight, harmonized, jazz vocal ensemble singing, as well as daring, individual vocal scat solo flights, vocalists Peter Eldridge, Lauren Kinhan, Darmon Meader (who also blows a mean tenor sax!), and Kim Nazarian have delivered their most swinging outing to date. Backed by a roaring big band, NEW YORK VOICES puts a fresh, new- and decidedly vocal- spin on Swing Era and post-World War II big band classics, with Sing! Sing! Sing!

I just purchased this album not ten minutes ago online, and i am anticipating the arrival very much! I saw the NEW YORK VOICES perform live with the Boston Pops Orchestra... they were phenomenal! Their omnipotent voices lead you to believe that you're being carried on a soul-train gone jazz. If you hate swing and jazz, then buy this CD, because it is SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! It is a little slice of heaven a la mode... JUST BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!
