Laurie Wheeler with her jazz vocal trio Nash deVille -- featuring Laurie Wheeler, Curt Bol and Rick Wheeler -- recreate Big Band swing classics with an edge, tight vocal harmonies and be-bop scats. When it comes to smokin', scattin' up tunes, these guys harmonize at 100 mph. Players include Ron Krasinski, Randy Smith, Pete Wasner, Rick Jackson, and Craig Wasner -- along with Larry Carlton, Kirk Whalum and Mark Douthit.

William Shatner teams up with Ben Folds for a surprisingly pop-driven, lyrically-potent collection of songs written by the duo. With the exception of "Trying," co-written by Folds and novelist Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About a Boy), "Real" by Brad Paisley, and Pulp's "Common People," Shatner proves to be a witty and self-deprecating poet, while Fold's talent for crafting the perfect pop melody has never been more evident. -- Shout!
