Brian Setzer Orchestra: Brian Setzer (vocals, guitar); Ray Herrmann, Tim Miscia, Steve Marsh, Rick Rossi, Dan Roberts (saxophone); Dan Fornero, John Fumo, Kevin Norton, Dennis Farias (trumpet); George McMullen, Michael Vlatkovich, Mark Jones, Robbie Hioki (trombone); Ernie Nunez, Tony Garnier (bass); Bernie Dresel (drums, percussion). Additional personnel: Gwen Stefani (vocals); Steve Fowler, George Shelby, Bob Sandman (saxophone); Stan Watkins, Charlie Biggs (trumpet); Roger Burn (piano); Bob Parr, Mark W. Winchester (bass); Eddie Nichols, Meghan Ivey (background vocals). Recorded at The Village Recorder, West Los Angeles, California. THE DIRTY BOOGIE was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Pop Album "Jump Jive An' Wail" won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. "Sleepwalk" won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. In his continuing evolution from pompadoured rockabilly revivalist to zoot-suited hipster, Brian Setzer keeps the faith with THE DIRTY BOOGIE, a collection that swings from stem to bow. Backed by hot horns and a bopping rhythm section, Setzer mixes well-arranged originals with well-known covers that show an aficionado's appreciation of jump blues, swing and doo-wop. Tunes by the Skyliners ("Since I Don't Have You"), Santo & Johnny ("Sleepwalk"), Bobby Darin ("As Long As I'm Singin'") and Bullmoose Jackson ("Nosey Joe") all enjoy the combination of Setzer's wide-ranging guitar playing and excellent charts played by his crack orchestra. Elsewhere, Gwen Stefani is LaVerne Baker to Setzer's Jimmy Ricks in a playful reading of "You're The Boss." Clint Stacey's "This Old House" gives Setzer a chance to show off some fancy country finger-picking. The two numbers that will make you want to grab a flat foot floogie and cut a rug in your living room are a Neil Hefti-flavored re-arrangement of "Rock This Town" and a killer cover of Louis Prima's "Jump Jive An' Wail."
