Swing-a-Billy

2011

Jazz - Swing

The Queen of Swing, Swings with her new CD, "Swing-a-Billy" which has already received 4 stars with French critic exclaiming "superb." Kelli received notice that the Grammy Reviewing Board placed 4 songs in contention for the 2013 Grammy Awards, Best Pop Vocal Performance. (not nominated). The CD kicks off "swinging" with the title cut, an autobiography of her musical career. With original lyrics, 4 verses long (included) Kelli gives praise to her Mother's influence and gift of a signature piano style, "Swing-a-Billy". Kelli plays a walking 4/4 "swing" bass line with her left hand, a testament to her title, "the Queen of Swing" given to her by Mr. Action, Roy Moss & Carl "Blue Suede Shoes" Perkins. However; the fun has just begun as a charismatic Swing version of "Goody, Goody" starts the ball rolling rivaling "The King of Swing" Benny Goodman's hit and Frankie Lymon's 50's chart topper. No disappoints so far as the Swing Queen ascends you to the CD's magnificent original, and Kelli's signature song, "The Queen of Swing". If your foot is not tapping by now friends and neighbors, then call the family in cause you must be "DEAD." ;o) With a couple of R&B covers by musical legends, "The Drifters" and R&B megastar, Ray Charles; "Drip Drop" & "Hallelujah, I Love Him So" Kelli takes you to another groove on an even higher level. Which I didn't think was possible. Complimenting Ray Charles cover with the exact opposite meaning, Kelli wrote a very enjoyable R&B story song that could truly catapult the CD into a Platinum arena. "Don't Mess With Me" (side note: Kelli wrote / recorded "Don't Mess With Texas" for the state of Texas, thus the song/title). With a "Zing" in my heart I enjoyed the vocals of this amazing singer on the Judy Garland cover, "Zing, Went the Strings of my Heart". A rather strange but mesmerizing arrangement I found captivating as well as exciting. Grab your girdle's girls and strut your stuff to two more of Kelli's penned genius: "
