Nice sound! It is an upbeat and jazzy rendition of some of the Traditional Hymns. Of course, it is not any rendition of any of the Big Band/Swing hits from Glenn Miller, etc. And, I don't think that it was ever meant to be. The description of the musical content is accurate, as written. For anyone to think of this to be otherwise would be mistaken. If you are someone that likes the SOUND of the Big Band/Swing era, then this might be a welcomed addition to your music library.
