I Love John Frigo...He Swings was the debut album of jazz violinist Johnny Frigo for Mercury Records. Despite the high caliber of Frigo's collaborators, the album was more or less ignored on its release. It would be decades later that he would get the chance to record as a leader again, in the interim performing mainly as an electric and double-bassist rather than a violinist.
