Swing For Private

Various Artists

Finest melodic sounds from the beginning of the golden era of Swing, from the 1930s
to the 50s and today, make this compilation the ideal soundtrack to spend romantic moments together, or to the priming coat of festive occasions.

With this new release on Lolas World Records a long-term dream of the Berlin based
DJ Louie Prima aka Johannes Heretsch comes true. He managed to compile an elegant and timeless selection of songs, which will not only make music lovers with Swing experience happy. Louie Prima, who has gained a reputation for being one of
the first Electro Swing DJs in Germany and for his participation on the successful
CD series: The Electro Swing Revolution and the same named event series in Berlin, shows his passion for authentic and classic Swing.

Swing is currently having an unprecedented renaissance, which is manifested in
the booming Swing dance scene, movies, commercials and the ever growing
Electro Swing party scene around the globe.

The double CD "Swing For Private" presents 34 first-class swing pearls from more than six centuries and eleven countries.

Here are some noteworthy examples:
Louie Prima- together with Harry Chestwig created an inventive version of Swingrowers electric remake of "Via Con me" which is originally from Paolo Conte.

Besides the famous Jazz icons like Nina Simone, Louis Armstrong and
Ella Fitzgerald, you will also find with "It's So Heartbreakin'", one of the early Swing shaped songs from the Soul queen Aretha Franklin. Many famous artists of today like Caro Emerald, Waldeck, Dimie Cat and Club des Belugas are on the compilation with their brandnew songs (including four yet unreleased works) and make
Swing for Private an outstanding musical treat.
