After seeing these guys in concert last Saturday I picked this one up. A good sound overall, and a very nice version of "The Comeback".

The band is "Kendrick Oliver New Life Jazz Orchestra" with singer Monica Lynk.

There are a few samples of it online here.

I saw them perform with Kevin Mahogany as part of their Swingin' The Blues tour.. the jazz club even had a dance floor set up!

Phil, thanks for the tip. I'll have to pick up that album as I am digging the samples on the site. That also sounds like an amazing concert. I'm jealous that you got to go to it. I wish it would make it out here to the west coast.

Great thread all around. I'll post some of my recent finds when I have a few minutes.

I agree. The samples I heard on the Web whetted my appetite, too.
