Stock Music track: Let's Keep In Touch

Medium tempo swinging big band backs Sinatra influenced vocals. Good hearted number about guy who loses the girl and tries to convince her to just “keep in touch”. Classic line “use me as a crutch/let’s keep in touch”. Fine jazz guitar solo at break. Horn section arrangement (trumpets, trombone, tenor sax, alto sax) punches with authority.

Lyrics: Let's keep in touch
Let's keep in touch
Keep in touch with me
Drop me a line
Any old time
You know that I'll be free

On a Sunday or a holiday
I'll be available
My datebook is never full
Since you sent me on my way

Let's keep in touch
Let's keep in touch
'Cuz you might want back
You never know
How life can go
It's never white or black

And when you sprain your heart running 'round everynight
Use me as your crutch
Come on baby
Let's keep in touch

Around midnight I just know you might
Need some comforting
Go on and give me a ring
You know I'll treat you right

Let's keep in touch
We'll do lunch dutch
So we can reminisce
'Bout the good old days
And the loving ways
That you're going to miss

And when you sprain your heart running 'round everynight
I'll be your big old crutch
Come on baby
Let's keep in touch
Come on baby
Let's keep in touch

About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
