Music You Don't Know You Like Yet




Chicago jazz mandolinist Don Stiernberg tackles some of the greatest jazz standards ever written on his new release Swing 220. Dons mandolin is joined by Jeff Jenkins on acoustic guitar and Rusty Holloway on standup bass. This CD flows like a smooth lazy river with some fun turns along the way. The three musicians on this disc are able to blend their instruments and crafts into a disc that is smooth but never boring. This CD will bring a smile to fans of musicians such as the late great Stephane' Grappelli or the inventive styling's of Dave Grisman. Swing 220 may be the perfect CD to lay back, pour the wine and let the talents of Don Stiernberg take your mind through a musical journey of some of the greatest songs ever written.
