Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Danny Bacher is a bright new star on the jazz landscape with a distinctive voice and a gift for phrasing. Says The New York Times, "Swing That Music is effortless fun in a tribute to jazz forerunners. It is about making hot music but staying cool, about cutting up while maintaining effortless self-control revealing Bacher to be prodigiously talented." With his unusually warm, soulful soprano sax sound and a swingin' "A LIST" band of jazz royalty, you've got the next "new classic" album, Swing that Music! Bacher's dynamic debut pays homage to three iconic fire-brand "Louis':" Armstrong, Prima and Jordan, with rare gems from each of their original repertoires. Executive and post-produced by world class jazz Producer, Suzi Reynolds, with Grammy-nominated vocalist Roseanna Vitro as Producer, Bacher is set to launch straight onto the stages and into the hearts of music lovers around the world. Vitro confirms, "Danny is reminiscent of 'triple talent' icons like Louis Armstrong and Sammy Davis, Jr. He's a serious jazz musician who holds his own improvising on sax or scatting with the best musicians on the scene... he has a natural flair for comedy and a voice full of soul."
