Shim Sham Sam It's so lively and every song is perfect for dancing. Favorite track: Peek-A-Boo.

Alex Burr Tight rhythm and a relaxed but spirited horn sound, with arrangements that are a mix of careful ensemble work and improvised play... a combination that works magnificently! A great successor to their first release. Favorite track: Tain't Like That.

Arnas Razgūnas A great dancing set! The band is tight playing fast and slow, easily creates a nice flow with plenty of medium tap-your-foot tempos, instrumentals and tracks with vocals. Beautiful takes on Blue Lester, Tain’t Like That and Jeep’s Blues. A very nice selection of popular and rare classics keeps your attention through the whole album. Favorite track: Blue Lester.

jakespatz The laid-back groove of the Brooks Prumo Orchestra hits the sweet spot. This is fine swing without any try-hard hype. The studio mix is balanced, and it hops and slides like music should (unlike some other contemporary jazz). "Out of Nowhere" is outstanding: inspired arrangement, knockout playing, genuine emotion. The vocal numbers get better with every listen, and "Blue Lester" has about it a certain sunburn-on-your-skin mint julep nighttime ease. Favorite track: Out Of Nowhere.

"This Year's Kisses" is Brooks Prumo Orchestra's second full-length release, and continues where the first left off. We've recorded more tunes featuring the amazing Alice Spencer on vocals, and let her shine more. New arrangements of old favorites make up the majority of the album, and hopefully you will enjoy. As usual, we hope to see you on the dance floor!
