The Brian Setzer Orchestra (sometimes going by the acronym BSO) is a swing and jump blues band formed in 1990 by Stray Cats frontman Brian Setzer. The group had success covering Louis Prima's "Jump Jive an' Wail", which appeared on Prima's 1957 album ''The Wildest!''. The BSO's follow up single was "Gettin' In the Mood."
Brian Setzer hit instant rock stardom as the frontman for the Stray Cats, the band that single-handedly jump-started the rockabilly revival of the early '80s. While the band's retro sound didn't last, Setzer proved himself a guitarist to be reckoned with. After he left the Stray Cats for good in the '90s, he assembled the Brian Setzer Orchestra, which helped kick-start another revival: big-band swing. ~ Rovi
