Denver Bierman and the Mile High Orchestra have found a marketing niche for themselves in the crowded CCM scene and are a Christian throw back to the sounds of Glenn Miller and other artists who "swing when they're winning". I have to be honest and admit that big band jaz and swing aren't my favourite styles of music but this certainly got my feet tapping and gave me a real positive feeling inside which is definitely no bad thing. Okay, the presentation is cheesy in places and some of the misguided attempts at humour are cringe worthy but then American tastes differ. Fans of swing and the big band sound, which is after all back in fashion, will no doubt love this Christianised version of the sound of the '40s while the visuals add a certain charm to the proceedings.
