Jack Jones - New Jack Swing - Fife Advertiser
02 February 1998Fife Advertiser
An absolute revelation of an album from JJ. Described on David Sterfeld's liner notes as "guaranteed to get your fingers poppin', your toes tappin', and your booty wigglin'", this is the album Jones has always threatened to deliver but never managed until now.
Backed by a wailing big band, the two-time Grammy winner swings his way with panache through a programme of standards and more contemporary songs by the likes of Sting, Bryan Adams and Lennon and McCartney with All Or Nothing At All, Every Breath You Take, Stranger in Paradise and an absolute belter of a version of Mack the Knife the stand-out cuts on an outstanding album.
