Cool City Band - Love Being Here With You

Nuvo Magazine Review.....Cool City Swing Band CD

A testament to Ellington's "It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing" is the stamp of the seven-piece Cool City Swing Band, directed by pianist/leader Roy Geesa. The band is now 6 years old....since adding vocalist Shannon Forsell, the band has performed more in public. They have recorded their first CD, I Love Being Here With You, with American Cabaret Theater stagemates Forsell and Jimmy Guilford handling the vocals.....

...Cool City's I Love Being Here With You CD is right on the money with this release. Not only does it swing, it is satisfying and soothingly fun with the band's tight, crisp and sparkling arrangements and energetic vocals from Forsell and Guilford. Forsell sings on 10 of the 16 tracks; she is especially impressive on the ballads. Guilford's five decades of performing come through on his polished vocal renderings of ballads and humor on his four tracks. Both singers come up with a humorous duet on "Shoo Be Do Be." The CD's one instrumental salutes the television theme song from American Bandstand. - Nuvo Magazine - Music Review by Chuck Workman



Some of Indy's finest have combined to make a swinging tribute to some of the great tunes of the American Songbook.
