For the discerning Barry Manilow fan, this 20-bit mastered recording of his 1987 "techno-swing" album SWING STREET is a must-have. Manilow delivers a mixed collection consisting of both originals and some well-chosen standards that he has updated with modern production touches. In collaborating with both talented contemporary artists and masters of jazz, Manilow shows an appealing mix of the classic and the modern, as well as his heartfelt respect for the American pop music tradition.
Divided into two sections--dubbed 8:00 P.M. and Midnight--the record begins with two upbeat numbers penned by Manilow's arranger Eddie Arkin, before revving up Benny Goodman's exuberant "Stomping at the Savoy" (augmented with extra lyrics by Manilow.) The 8:00 segment ends with a couple of duets--with Phyllis Hyman on the Manilow original "Black & Blue," and with Kid Creole on the self-explanatory "Hey Mambo." Manilow turns in solid versions of the Gershwin standard "Summertime" (a duet with Diane Schuur featuring sax legend Stan Getz) and Hoagy Carmichael's "Stardust." He collaborates with another jazz legend, saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, on the closing number, "One More Time."
