Makes My Heart Sway CD


The critically acclaimed 3rd album from Seattle's Sweethearts makes a perfect gift for yourself or the jazz lover in your life.

"Like listening to Billie Holiday, you feel you are taking two friends along with you on your day – "Makes My Heart Sway" has that instantaneous likeability. --Jazz Times

Add To Cart

"Makes My Heart Sway" (2016) is Sundae + Mr. Goessl's newest album. A follow up to their debut "Cheek to Cheek" (2014), Makes My Heart Sway features a moody and diverse palate. The title track is an original tune written by guitarist Jason Goessl and was meant to capture the essence of the album as a whole, ranging from a tremolo-induced "Nature Boy" to a poppy rendition of "Fascinating Rhythm". The heart breaking lyrics from "After You've Gone" are quickly forgotten when the bonus track of Prom Queen's "Pretty Little Thing" puts you under a spell…The Prom Queen song is not the only tune out of the 1930's context. Sundae's sweet arrangement of Squirrel Nut Zipper's "Low Down Man" is a fresh surprise. The Seattle couple once again puts the genre of Vintage Pop back on the map with their arrangements of these superb songs, but don't let the word "pop" fool you. The musicianship of this duo is outstanding and Sundae's scat solos are just as delightful as Mr. Goessl's continuously mind-blowing jazz chops. Another terrific album from Seattle's Sweethearts, Sundae and Mr. Goessl.
