Rock Swings is an album by Paul Anka. Recorded in November 2004 and released on May 31, 2005 in Canada and June 7, 2005 in the United States, it contains swing jazz covers of popular rock and pop songs from the 1980s and 1990s. The idea of an established vocalist giving rock hits a "standards" treatment was earlier realized by Anka's contemporary Pat Boone in the 1997 album, In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, with Boone doing covers of songs by Alice Cooper, Van Halen and Judas Priest.
Having written a fair number of them, Paul Anka recognizes a contemporary standard when he hears one, even if it doesn't conform to the historical model as it's existed from the days of Tin Pan Alley to Broadway.
Rock Swings' features Paul Anka's unmistakable voice with an all star big band orchestra in swinging arrangements of some of the most popular Pop songs from the last quarter century! Verve. Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This was a great album for anyone who loves big bands. It's a great concept albums that probably didn't go very far because most of today's listening audience no longer appreciates big bands, or quality itself for that matter. Rock songs were arranged for big band, and the musicians performed flawlessly.
