In Swingin' at the Cinema, the Jonah Jones
Quartet has gathered a perfect set of songs to display the rich repertoire of Hollywood
film music. And with Jonah's revealing handling the melodies stand out in sharp relief,
becoming new evidence of the wealth of music the films have produced. They're all
brilliantly showcased by the quartet's approach and, in particular, by that jaunty man at
the helm, Jonah Jones.
His past hit albums - Muted Jazz,
Swingin' on Broadway, and Jumpin' with Jonah - have made Jonah's the sound that
all America swings to. And his Swingin' at the Cinema is in the same happy vein.
Jonah's technique with these songs is abandoned but sure, and it's aimed at bringing a
perky, new swing to each number. Perhaps that's why his performances are so popular...
because Jonah has his trumpet tuned to those emotions that make us swing. But analyzing
Jonah's work is impossible. Nor is it useful. It's enough to say: Here's Jonah, a swingin'
Jonah, Swingin' at the Cinema.
