2014 holiday release from the Academy Award-nominated and Grammy-nominated writer, singer, actor, producer and director. HOLIDAY FOR SWING follows his critically acclaimed 2011 debut, MUSIC IS BETTER THAN WORDS and a 2013 Oscar Nomination for co-writing 'Everybody Needs a Best Friend' from Ted. Once again, MacFarlane teamed up with composer, arranger, and producer Joel McNeely. The album features a 52-piece orchestra recorded at the iconic Abbey Road Studios and a bevy of London's premier players. Among the musicians in the orchestra were jazz legend Peter Erskine on the drums and former Frank Sinatra bassist Chuck Berghoffer. For the album, MacFarlane and McNeely cherry-picked both timeless holiday songs and lesser-known gems.
