At first glance, Rod Stewart and Jools Holland collaborating on a swing album might be a head-scratcher. Dig a little deeper, however, and the pairing makes perfect sense. Although Stewart made his name in the rock 'n' roll world, he has released five albums of pop standards culled from the Great American Songbook. Holland, meanwhile, also has sterling rock 'n' roll pedigree—among other things, he was a founding member of Squeeze—but the pianist has a long history with big band music, having formed Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra back in the late 1980s.

Swing Fever grew out of idle conversation the men had in recent years. Stewart had started work on a swing album but was dissatisfied with the results, noting they sounded more like Frank Sinatra than Louis Prima. However, he thought Holland could help him realize this very specific vision—an astute thought, as the inspired collection overflows with sizzling horns, upbeat grooves, crisp walking bass lines, and luxurious arrangements. The debonair opening track "Lullaby of Broadway" alone features a lush backing chorus of female vocalists, a tap dancing interlude and a twinkling piano solo.

From there, Swing Fever unfurls hit after hit that shows off the nuances of swing's many moods—a laid-back "Sentimental Journey," a snappy take on "Pennies from Heaven," the jazzy "Almost Like Being in Love," a Rat Pack-conjuring "Frankie and Johnny." A muscular take on the jump blues tune "Good Rockin' Tonight" serves as a link between Stewart's rock background and love of the classics, while their version of Fats Waller's "Ain't Misbehavin'" is an appropriately brassy, theatrical big band number. Vocally, Stewart exudes exuberance throughout, courtesy of raspy razzle-dazzle full of sparkling wit and passion. Holland is likewise a generous bandleader who encourages his instrumentalists to let loose, while his trademark boogie-woogie piano is uniformly crisper and livelier. Swing Fever is a lighthearted delight that demonstrates the chemistry between the two musicians—and points to yet another successful evolution for Stewart. © Annie Zaleski/Qobuz

Album review

**Tracks 9 and 12 are only available in 16-bit (CD quality).**

At first glance, Rod Stewart and Jools Holland collaborating on a swing album might be a head-scratcher. Dig a little deeper, however, and the pairing makes perfect sense. Although Stewart made his name in the rock 'n' roll world, he has released five albums of pop standards culled from the Great American Songbook. Holland, meanwhile, also has sterling rock 'n' roll pedigree—among other things, he was a founding member of Squeeze—but the pianist has a long history with big band music, having formed Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra back in the late 1980s.

Swing Fever grew out of idle conversation the men had in recent years. Stewart had started work on a swing album but was dissatisfied with the results, noting they sounded more like Frank Sinatra than Louis Prima. However, he thought Holland could help him realize this very specific vision—an astute thought, as the inspired collection overflows with sizzling horns, upbeat grooves, crisp walking bass lines, and luxurious arrangements. The debonair opening track "Lullaby of Broadway" alone features a lush backing chorus of female vocalists, a tap dancing interlude and a twinkling piano solo.

From there, Swing Fever unfurls hit after hit that shows off the nuances of swing's many moods—a laid-back "Sentimental Journey," a snappy take on "Pennies from Heaven," the jazzy "Almost Like Being in Love," a Rat Pack-conjuring "Frankie and Johnny." A muscular take on the jump blues tune "Good Rockin' Tonight" serves as a link between Stewart's rock background and love of the classics, while their version of Fats Waller's "Ain't Misbehavin'" is an appropriately brassy, theatrical big band number. Vocally, Stewart exudes exuberance throughout, courtesy of raspy razzle-dazzle full of sparkling wit and passion. Holland is likewise a generous bandleader who encourages his instrumentalists to let loose, while his trademark boogie-woogie piano is uniformly crisper and livelier. Swing Fever is a lighthearted delight that demonstrates the chemistry between the two musicians—and points to yet another successful evolution for Stewart. © Annie Zaleski/Qobuz
