Says ROSSIL, “Releasing a recorded version of SWINGIN’ WITH THE MOUSE is the result of a long journey presenting live performances. We cannot get together to celebrate the album in our traditional fashion, so I thought it was best to take advantage of the great technology at hand to bring the group and some special guests together for a special GRAMMY® FYC event. And where better than where it all started? The beautiful Rockwell Table and Stage!”
Since 2016, the SWINGIN’ WITH THE MUSIC collective – including the project SWINGIN’ WITH THE MOUSE (Volume 1) – has been reimagining beloved and lesser-known songs with new jazz renditions. Turn on the television, walk down the street, or simply scroll through your favorite app; anywhere you turn, music is there waiting for you. It enhances all aspects of the human experience, and it is SWINGIN’ WITH THE MUSIC’s mission to celebrate what makes music special told through the ever-expressive sounds of jazz. From singers to musicians and audience members, one thing has always been abundantly clear at SWTM shows: what brings people together is the joys of enjoying a familiar tune in a new way. SWINGIN’ WITH THE MOUSE has played in concert at Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York and at the Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Angeles.
