Review by Charlotte Dillon
This is swing revival, boogie-woogie, jump, big band, and the blues all rolled into one satisfying serving. This album, Jump for Joy, recorded by Mitch Woods & His Rocket 88's, is hip-rolling, feet-moving joy for the ears. In fact, the title is a name the artist felt fit the style of music he was offering here, and fans have agreed with him.
Longtime singer/songwriter and pianist Mitch Woods brought not only his band, the Rocket 88's, in on this recording, but also a number of other musicians, including saxophonists Danny Bittker, Michael Peloquin, and Jeff Ervin, trumpeters Tim Hyland and Mike Whitwell, and trombonist Mike Rinta. They actually finished this album three years before it was finally released to the public.
This album is probably one of the best works Woods has put together in a while, if not the best altogether.
