Vocal diva Keely Smith takes a trip down memory lane in a musical joy ride through Las Vegas, circa 1958. And, as Lady Luck would have it, Keely invites listeners and dancers along for the exhilarating ride. Revisiting and reinventing the songs that she and iconic entertainer Louis Prima popularized during their celebrated reign of the desert oasis, the Queen of Swing affectionately looks back while swinging ahead in a sinfully hot new recording of Smith/Prima favorites. Captured live at Feinstein’s at the Regency in New York City, Keely’s golden pipes are heard in top form, revealing a fascinating and unparalleled combination of clarity, power, expression, and swing, as she jumps, jives an’ wails from the first note to the last.
