"It's safe to say that Chicago's Mighty Blue Kings were ahead of their time. And with their debut Meet Me in Uptown, these guys are playing smooth without any big-budget production or high energy. Instead, this record has more of a laid-back, bluesy feel with production that sounds as if it was recorded in the 1940s. But it's not like this album is undanceable -- it swings hard. And with that, the Mighty Blue Kings prove that a modern-day swing band can capture the authenticity of how the music was meant to sound."
