The Rat Pack lives again on Brian Setzer Orchestra’s second album, Guitar Slinger. With his horn-punctuated, 17-piece backup group, guitarist Setzer connects the worlds of ’50s big bands, jump blues, and Stray Cats rockabilly. By offering salutes to Louis Prima and Sammy Davis Jr. along the way, Setzer stirs his rock with a swizzle stick.
