"It's nice to see women playing guitar and bass instead of the usual dude in a fedora. Plus they swing like nobody's business. They feature a kickin' rhythm section and vocal harmonies that are highly distinctive in this field of Chicago-style quartets. Particularly hot was the old Louis Prima jump tune 'Jump Jive and Wail' with its slick jitterbug harmonies."
