Antoine Silverman: Swing Shift

The jazz violin of French-American Antoine Silverman creates a more lyrical approach to swing, teaming with guitarist Andy Reiss for a sound wonderfully reminiscent of the great Stephan Grappelli. The quartet nudges the nuances on a dozen evergreens, the best of which is an inventive rendition of “Softly As in a Morning Sunrise.” Also top-level are their readings of “How High the Moon,” “Autumn Leaves” and “Angel Eyes.” Great listening.
