This week, we’ve got some short takes on Swing Caravan’s CD Get It Fresh. The band’s rhythm guitarist, Jack Brown, is the author of the Advocate’s Cinema Dope film column.
Get It Fresh
Swing Caravan's dynamic sounds leap and jump in nuanced rhythms that play homage to Django Reinhardt's gypsy jazz. From fiery dance tunes to wandering ballads, this group brings modern sounds to a classic tradition.
The rhythmically manic Swing Caravan dance around fast beat jazz with melodic guitar solos. In their four-piece form, they are a powerful quartet, dynamically in-sync and always energetic.
