The Phantom Dancer is an album of songs from 1926 – 1939 sung by Greg Poppleton. “Boy! Do these guys swing.” – Gerald H Beulah, Jazzreview.com (U.S)
Don’t you just appreciate pleasant surprises? Especially musical ones! There’s nothing like stumbling across an artist who is fresh, original, filled with musical integrity, and especially one that has a unique perspective on the familiar. Australian Jazz vocalist extraordinaire Greg Poppleton is such an artist; one whom this reviewer can’t say enough great things about.And boy do these guys swing! I thoroughly enjoy this CD. It’s fresh and open. The music literally pulls you into yesteryear and reminds you of the infinite palettes jazz offers and a peak into where it was in the late 20s. The musicians are incredible and their presentation is flawless.Greg Poppleton has captured the essence of the jazz singers of that era and is able to exhibit an originality that make his offering a new standard for tomorrow’s generation. You will be listening to this disc for years to come!
