AllMusic Review by

Ostensibly assembled in honor of Valentine's Day, Lovers' Swing assembles 18 vintage, romantically themed recordings cut between 1936 and 1958; not limited to exclusively swing but also including jump-blues and Latin sides, its highlights include Louis Jordan's "Baby, You're Just Too Much," Lena Horne's "At Long Last Love," Benny Goodman's "Get Happy" and Artie Shaw & Tony Pastor's "Indian Love Call."
