It was 1982 when Ward Swingle, taking over one of the bass voices in the Ensemble on his own, introduced his new generation of Swingle Singers before a live audience. Precisely because their sound comes along so honestly deep in the pre-Bill Hare era, "Live in New York" impresses. The mix of classic earworms (Bach-Fuge, Blue Rondo à la Turk, Clair de Lune, Flight of the Bumblebee), jazz classics (Lil' Darlin, Fascinating Rhythm, It's All Right With Me), and entertaining pop and folk numbers (Pastime With Good Company, The Cock Linnet Song) is a nice cross-section of all that the Swingle Singers has popularized over decades with a broad audience.
Of course, the group will be waved aside for that by many purists and saviors of high civilization at best with a frown. Luckily for the "Swingles", there are lots of people who like to be entertained at the highest musical crossover level. Then, they get the entire collection of over 20 Swingle Singers albums and revel in vocal music history.
