    In his continuing evolution from pompadoured rockabilly revivalist to zoot-suited hipster, Brian Setzer keeps the faith with THE DIRTY BOOGIE, a collection that swings from stem to bow. Backed by hot horns and a bopping rhythm section, Setzer mixes well-arranged originals with well-known covers that show an aficionado's appreciation of jump blues, swing and doo-wop. Tunes by the Skyliners ("Since I Don't Have You"), Santo & Johnny ("Sleepwalk"), Bobby Darin ("As Long As I'm Singin'") and Bullmoose Jackson ("Nosey Joe") all enjoy the combination of Setzer's wide-ranging guitar playing and excellent charts played by his crack orchestra.
    Elsewhere, Gwen Stefani is LaVerne Baker to Setzer's Jimmy Ricks in a playful reading of "You're The Boss." Clint Stacey's "This Old House" gives Setzer a chance to show off some fancy country finger-picking. The two numbers that will make you want to grab a flat foot floogie and cut a rug in your living room are a Neil Hefti-flavored re-arrangement of "Rock This Town" and a killer cover of Louis Prima's "Jump Jive An' Wail."

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (8/9/98, p.75) - "...Instead of slavishly reviving big band music, Setzer puts a Louis Prima-style horn section behind a wailing electric guitar. Setzer's take on jump music reflects not only the kick of his rockabilly roots but the expansiveness of '60s amd '70s rock..."
    - Rating: B+
    Q (12/99, p.128) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...his 17-piece powerhouse finds him reviving suitable oldies or creating originals that simply sound as if they've jumped out of the past..."
