Danny Jonokuchi & The Revisionists are “today’s premier swing band” (Broadway World) from the heart of New York City. Fueled by an unwavering love of dancing, their music has been described as “smile-inducing” (DownBeat) as well as “crisp, clean, and refreshingly joyful” (Syncopated Times). Their new album, “Together Again” (2022), was released following their headlining performance at Lincoln Center’s Summer For The City Festival. In 2020, they were unanimously named the WINNERS of the inaugural Count Basie Great American Swing Contest for their virtual performance of “One O’Clock Jump”. The award-winning track included on the Late Night Basie album, alongside a star-studded roster of artists paying tribute to the great Count Basie.

“Together Again” (2022) is the band’s second album that combines tracks featuring 24 musicians that recorded remotely across the continent over two years, as well as their first recording session back in person. The band’s debut album, “Let Me Off Uptown” (2019), is also available on all streaming platforms and includes original numbers and songs made famous by Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day, Billie Holiday, and many more. The album features some of New York’s finest instrumentals and also shines a light on vocalist Alexa Barchini who has been described as “a star in the making” (Syncopated Times).
