World-class entertainer, vocalist, and New York Times best-selling author Deana Martin shows why she reigns as the Queen of Cool with her 5th musical album,Swing Street, available now via Big Fish Records. It is the follow-up to Martin's 2013 top selling album,Destination Moon, a compilation of her favorite jazz and pop songs, plus a duet with her father, Dean Martin, on True Love.
Swing Street features several covers of swinging classics as well as five new songs by Patrick Williams. Among the classic tunes are Bye Bye Blackbird, Georgia On My Mind, Quando, Quando, Quando, andWho's Got The Action made famous by her father. Newfound tunes by Martin include Bellissima andSpooky. Produced by John Griffeth, and arranged and conducted by Patrick Williams and Chris Walden, the album features a host of A-list session players, Grammy© winning arrangers, composers and engineers, all recorded at the famous Capitol Records Studio A in Hollywood, California.
"Swing Street" is one of the finest in Deana's canon of work. Each album sees this artist grow ... take more risks ... and spread her wings. There are 15 swingin' songs on "Swing Street" packed with all the diversity and elegance you would expect from a woman who is passionate about her music. Deana challenges herself with each project and "Swing Street" certainly proves that. In this collection, she once again gathers her A-list of session players, arrangers, composers, conductors, and engineers ... the ones who live and breathe this music, and she hands them 15 gems to wrap themselves around. "Swing Street" is a sophisticated collection of superb performances. And, while it might not be her motivation, it sure feels like her proud Pop is giving her his inimitable smile and saying, "Ya did good, Kid. Let 'em have it."
-Lou Simon, Senior Director of Music Programming at Sirius XM Satellite Radio
