‘Swing’ is a first for Renee. The album is her Big Band interpretation of evergreen classics as well as Calypso remakes of two of her own hits. ‘Say I Love You’ and ‘It’s a Mans Man World’. The latter, a cover of the James Brown classic, was her very first hit song nearly 40 years ago.

‘Swing’ is also Renee’s first album for Robert Rigby’s Fanfare Records label. Fanfare also released Russell Morris’ Top 10 ARIA album ‘Sharkmouth’.

“Tthe album is a collection of wonderful songs delivered by Renee in a tour de force,” says Rigby. “On this record she had a great deal especially with her great friend Paul Kelly on a classic Mel Torme song ‘Comin’ Home Baby’.”

The album features arrangements by Paul Williamson and Dave Palmer.

Here is the tracklisting for ‘Swing’:

Baby Please Don’t Go
I Got Rhythm
I Wanna Be Around
Fly Me To The Moon
Comin’ Home Baby (with Paul Kelly)
Alfie
Say I Love You
What A Wonderful World
