Chris Daniels and the Kings
Louie Louie
Moon Voyage

For Chris Daniels and The Kings, swing is not a new genre. Louie Louie, their seventh album in 15 years, salutes Louis Prima, Louis Jordan and Louis Armstrong, showmen all. Daniels has a Lyle Lovett kind of drawl as he roars through "Choo-Choo-Ch'Boogie," "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" and "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby." Tight arrangements are confidently delivered by the septet, punctuated by searing alto and burning trumpet solos.
