Album review: The Schwings Band - Plazi

Remigijus Rančys (saxophones, vocals), Richardas Banys (piano, back-vocal), Vadim Stankevičius (guitar, back-vocal), Denis Murašov (double bass, back-vocal), Gediminas Stankevičius (drums, back-vocal), Jievaras Jasinskis (trombone, back-vocal). Album’s sound producer – Justinas Ladyga.

I thought the Classic Jazz Party had been cancelled till next year but it hasn't. What am I saying? Of course it has. Must be a sign of old age but when I started listening to this I was convinced I was at the Village Hotel then it clicked I wasn't on an estate near Whitley Bay but in Lithuania!

If you like the CJP fayre then you'll love The Schwings Band.
