Pop in Swing Review

by Jon O'Brien

Like fellow '40s and '50s revivalists the Puppini Sisters and the Baseballs, French seven-piece vocal group Pink Turtle perform swing/jazz interpretations of contemporary pop songs. Their 2008 debut, Pop in Swing, focuses mainly on the sounds of the '70s as they tackle prog rock (Yes' "Owner of a Lonely Heart"), heavy metal (AC/DC's "Highway to Hell") and disco-pop (Bee Gees' "How Deep Is Your Love"), alongside reworkings of tracks by Deep Purple, Supertramp, and the Eagles.
