With Swing On This, the all-star quintet Opus 5 presents its fifth Criss Cross album, and first since 2015, when they released Tickle [CRI 146125], Progression [CRI 141696], Pentasonic [ CRI 133418], and Introducing Opus 5 [ CRI 126846], each recorded a year apart.

The “all star” sobriquet is not an exaggeration – the collective discographies of trumpeter Alex Sipiagin, tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake, pianist David Kikoski, bassist Boris Kozlov, and drummer Donald Edwards, all international first-callers, total more than 30 Criss Cross leader dates.
