What’s being said about Aint Dead Yet:

            From the first track’s opening notes, I was aware of a different sound coming from this tight swing assemblage. …. Frequently when trumpet and saxophone elements are used in Western Swing, they don’t go for the big brass blare utilized by the 40s Big Bands….Here the Hot Texas Swing Band flouts it proudly and successfully.  They are also not afraid to stretch, as they do in bandleader Alex Dormont’s track called “Castle Walls.”  ….Some picks include the title track, “Back in My  Texas Home,” “Along the Navajo Trail,” “Bang, Bang,” and “You Don’t Know Me” but it’s all good, as the saying goes.

Love the new record - playing title track right now!  
Gordon Ames, KERV Kerrville
 
This is a new CD, the third by this wonderful Texas band that combines Western Swing, Texas dance hall and big band instrumentation with some top class vocals on 13 beautiful cuts. 
Mike Gross, KSEY-FM, Seymour, TX & KTNK-AM, Lompoc, CA
 
…you play a music that I love so much , a music that symbolizes Texas so well ...you are at the heart of the Texas music … you are really a reference in that style .....there is such a good spirit in your recordings ...
         Mike Penard, French DJ
 
..… outstanding in their field…..Dormont’s tight outfit has flourished over the last three years …..
the band name pretty much says it all…

Here’s a bunch of guys and gals that sound like they’re really enjoying themselves.  It feels fast and loose, and I suspect was recorded ‘as live’, and that’s what makes it so darn enjoyable.
They sure do swing on these 13 tunes including seven originals and Johnny Gimble’s tune Junior’s Shadow.
The band’s originals are terrific.  I think HTSB have yet to make the perfect record, and I’m sure that won’t be far off. In the meantime I’ll be enjoying this just fine.
