From time to time some of these groups come together, pool their resources and manage to record an album to display their talents and let those in other places know that jazz is alive and kicking in their little corner of the world. As a case in point, there is the Milwaukee Jazz Orchestra whose debut recording, Welcome to Swingsville!, serves as an admirable survey of the ensemble's prowess as well as a persuasive declaration that big bands haven't yet vanished from the scene in urban Wisconsin
A rare occasion of live recording performed with The Milwaukee Jazz Orchestra makes an exuberant splash! Curt Hanrahan, Director of Jazz Studies at UWM, utilized Milwaukee area musicians and also invited his son, Tim Hanrahan on bass, and brother, Warren Hanrahan on drums, to help create an impromptu setting of swingin' excellence! This was a sight reading/recording session of pure emotion and creativity!!. Welcome to Swingsville is a perfect blend of toe tapping, head bobbing, soul reaching audio perfection.
