AllMusic Review by

The Real Deal: The Best of Today's Swing Music highlights the more reverent yet eclectic side of the retro-swing revival, demonstrating its incorporation of compatible styles like jump blues, rockabilly, and Western swing. Most of the performances are energetic and enthusiastic, and although most of these acts haven't gotten the popular exposure of a Big Bad Voodoo Daddy or Royal Crown Revue, that certainly doesn't mean they're less talented.
