Lee Presson and the Nails (also known as LPN) is a swing band that formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in October 1994 during the late 1990s swing revival. As of 2010, the band has released five albums. LPN differentiated themselves from other bands of the late '90s swing revival by their wacky stage antics and the sinister appearance of band leader Lee Presson. The San Francisco Chronicle described LPN in 1996 by coining the term "Goth Swing." The band won a California Music Award (Bammie) in 1998 for Best Swing/Cabaret Act, an SF Weekly Award for Best Swing Band later that year. LPN temporarily disbanded in 2004 when Lee Presson moved to Hollywood, where he played keyboard for the Oingo Boingo tribute band Dead Man's Party.

In fashion circles, the adjective “bespoke” denotes custom-made suits and shirts and signifies the person who designs and constructs them. On The Bespoke Man’s Narrative, pianist Aaron Diehl extrapolates this notion to matters of musical invention. The five originals and five arrangements comprising the programme were chosen specifically for Diehl's quartet of young all-stars: vibraphonist Warren Wolf, bassist David Wong and drummer Rodney Green.

This double-CD set gave bassist Milt Hinton an opportunity to engage in reunions with many of his old friends from the 1930s. The seven sessions were compiled during a 12-month period and the results are often delightful. The opening "Old Man Time" is sung by Hinton himself, and it is both insightful and humorous. The other highlights include Joe Williams singing "Four or Five Times" (which features some very rare Flip Phillips clarinet), three bass guitar duets with Danny Barker, appearances by Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Clark Terry, Al Grey, Ralph Sutton, and the formation of a group called "The Survivors" that has guitarist Al Casey at age 75 being the youngest member; the latter band also includes 85-year-old trumpeter Doc Cheatham, Eddie Barefield, Buddy Tate and even Cab Calloway. A lot of storytelling takes place during the songs and, in addition to the 92½ minutes of music, there are two "Jazzspeaks." The 13-minute one features Hinton, Calloway, Cheatham and Barefield reminiscing about their experiences in the early days, while a marvelous 45-minute monologue by the bassist covers most of his long and productive life and is consistently fascinating. Highly recommended.

Bringing a bold, new sound to 'vintage pop', Matt Forbes is being hailed as the freshest voice to hit the genre in more than a decade. Since releasing his debut LP, Coulda Woulda Shoulda in October 2015, Forbes has garnered widespread critical acclaim with national television appearances on E! News, CTV's eTalk and The Marilyn Denis Show. Receiving regular airplay across the US, Canada and UK (BBC Radio 2), the album was a Critic's Pick in HELLO! Canada Magazine, featured on HuffPost Entertainment and rose to #4 on Amazon's Top 10 Chart for Hot New Releases in Vocal Jazz, where it remained for its first three months of release. Forbes' soulful vocals and unmistakable sound are wowing the millennials of his own generation with songs made popular decades before they were born.

Few jazz albums released in 2005 have given me as much pleasure as the latest release by Mathias Rüegg's big band. Sure, there has been plenty of nu-jazz, world jazz, third stream and jazz-funk (such as Soulive's Break Out, above), but Swing and Affairs is genuine jazz-jazz. Rüegg, as leader, pianist and composer-arranger of the VAO for nearly three decades, has reinvented the jazz ensemble many times over, but here he demonstrates his effortless mastery of the conventional line-up: four each of trumpets and trombones, five saxes and a rhythm section.

BGO's 2015 two-fer pairs two mid-'70s albums from Jerry Lee Lewis – 1974's I-40 Country and 1975's Odd Man In – on a single CD. Jerry Lee Lewis didn't get much of a boost out of his 1973 return to rock & roll – a revival arriving on two separate LPs, one recorded in England (The Session) and one back home (Southern Roots) – so he slid back to country, scoring a hit with "Sometimes a Memory Ain't Enough" from the album of the same name. I-40 Country arrived a year later, easing into stores in 1974 under the guise of a truck-driving country LP. While these 11 songs do sound good on the open road, none of them are about big rigs or highways, nor do they roll along to a Bakersfield beat. No, they're straight-ahead barroom weepers punctuated by the very occasional novelty – so occasional, it doesn't extend beyond "Alcohol of Fame."

After years of playing bass with Chicago legends like Muddy Waters and Otis Spann, not to mention a stint in the Soul Train house band (he was also one of the show's producers) and a contribution to the theme of Sanford and Son, Mac Arnold moved back to his South Carolina home. But you can't keep a good bluesman down, and after his friends and neighbors kept asking him to perform, he put together his first band, Mac Arnold & Plate Full o' Blues.
