Hag Leaps In by Bob Haggart's Swing Three

Arbors Records has put out a great recording by one of the most brilliant upright bass players, Bob Haggart. In this CD Haggart is accompanied by John Bunch on piano, and Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar. These three guys are my ultimate idols. I won't tell you their ages but let's just say that the youngest one is 71. When I'm 71+ I hope to be jammin' like these guys. These three great musicians represent true jazz swing like it was meant to be played. These guys have got real "Soul" that shows through in each and every song.

My favorite song, "Big Noise From Winnetka" has an up-tempo flavor that's sure to get your toes tappin' and your head boppin'. Each tune has its own distinct taste that brings you deep into the flow of the music. This trio brings together a great classic feel of Jazz that will allow you to enjoy every tune. We did!
