Stock Music track: Just Around the Corner

Hard swinging big band backs Sinatra-type male crooner in this driving up-tempo number. Top notch horn arrangement led by intricate sax voicing, blazing trumpets, and fat trombones. Lyrics everyone can relate to; the feeling that something big is just around the corner, and that lives can change for the better if we just hang in there and believe in ourselves.

Lyrics: Just around the corner
Something’s waiting for me
I can’t put my finger
On what it might be.

Might be truth and wisdom
Might be diamonds and gold
Might be the greatest
Story ever told

But the truth is; I don’t care
I just need a break and I swear
It’s just around the corner out there

Lately life’s been laughing
Like a mean circus clown
Making jokes about me
And trying to keep me down

But I’m saying “Bring it baby,
Give me all you got
‘Cuz my time is coming baby
For my one big shot”

And if I’m wrong, I don’t care
You can’t win playing scared
It’s just around the corner out there

The truth is, I don’t care
You can’t win playing scared
It’s just around the corner out there

Just around the corner
Just around the corner
Just around the corner out there
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.
