Usually ready in 4 hours Brian Setzer has spent much of his career revving up already hot retro styles to a booming pitch. While this generally worked in his early years with the rockabilly Stray Cats, it largely fails with his swing orchestra. Louis Prima--whose "Jump Jive an' Wail" is faithfully remade here--wasn't exactly the king of subtlety himself, but even he might have covered his ears at the blare produced by the combination of Setzer's (admittedly sharp) guitar playing and a too-bright horn section. A couple of The Dirty Boogie's cuts are cute ("You're the Boss," an Elvis Presley/Ann-Margret duet, is recast for Setzer and No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani), but fans of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy might think twice. --Rickey Wright Product description 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).

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 do Review ...Setzer puts a Louis Prima-style horn section behind a wailing electric guitar. -- Entertainment Weekly
