The Kremlinaires

33WM129 (33 Records)

Swing fiddler Chris Haigh has put this seven-piece "Soviet Swing band mixing Russian folk with 40's swing, dedicated to the overthrow of Capitalism and the establisRedirectnt of the Peoples Soviet Republic of Great Britain". The stars of the band are undoubtedly Chris on swing fiddle, Victor Unukovsky on jazz guitar and Sergui Pachnine on accordion and Russian style vocals.

We have titles such as 'Stomping with Stalin', 'A Tsar is Born' and 'Fat Vlad from
Volgagrad'. Among the jump jazz numbers are Louis Jordan's 'Five Guys named
Mo' and 'Is you Is or Is you Ain't my baby?'
It's all lively stuff.
