"Tales of revenge, tragedy and romance."The Simians of Swing are no ordinary jazz group; they are story tellers in the great comic book tradition. Each number on this album is a soundtrack to a hero or villain; some of the characters are good, most are bad … but all are legends with tales of revenge, tragedy and romance. Set in a post-apocalyptic world the Simians narrate their stories through the medium of jazz.

"All the musicians sound superb throughout...a highly recommended recording."
"Slow or fast, upbeat or downcast, the Simians of Swing is an impressive and enjoyable outfit."
