Swing might seem an exclusively urban phenomenon, a facet of cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Kansas City. Don't mention that to Matt Catingub, vocalist, alto saxophonist, pianist, Copa Cat Pack bandleader, and all-around Big Kahuna. Catingub's got swing pegged as ripe for a Hawaiian connection. On tunes like "Pearly Shells" (familiar to many as the melody for C&H sugar commercials in the 1970s), he sounds utterly convincing. He leads his 12-piece band through melodies that don't challenge with unfamiliarity so much as they ring with a comfy simplicity that keeps its cool by simply swinging hard. The vibe is laid back in the way Count Basie was, which is to say that the Copa Cat Pack doesn't get worked up in an Ellingtonian display of complex arrangements. What's best, the band can really cook, with Catingub throwing out solid solos while the band powers ahead danceably. Their take on Dizzy Gillespie's "Night in Tunisia" is so quick that you miss the feeling of a cop-show theme, the utterly fun, quick jolt. --Andrew Bartlett
