Brian Swartz's 5th jazz album as a leader is his first to feature his vocals. Swartz pays homage the tradition of the great jazz trumpeter/vocalists like Louis Armstrong, Chet Baker, Kenny Dorham, Clark Terry & Jack Sheldon but with a style that is all his own. Containing 4 original songs, 2 instrumentals & 7 jazz standards all arranged by Swartz, "To Be With You" is a hard blowing jazz record to accompany his lyrical, dynamic & visceral vocals.
