Johnny SWing - the musical
'Johnny Swing - the musical' is a project I started a long time ago! I spent several years playing a weekly residency with a big band, and over that period of about six years I don't think we'd played all of the 600 arrangements in the pad! I was in love with The Great American Songbook and I decided I'd like to try and write some songs in that style. Johnny Swing is not really a musical in the sense of having a script and a plot - it's simply a set of songs in a certain style with a particular approach to the lyrics. Theses are demos that have been recorded over the years.
