Swingin' is a jazz album by Arturo Sandoval released in 1996..

The music is swinging with no Latin rhythm. The album has been cited as "one of Arturo Sandoval's finest recordings,"[1] and a "nice addition to the Sandoval library", but classic Sandoval rather than attempting anything too innovative.[2] The line up features clarinetist Eddie Daniels, tenorists Michael Brecker and Ed Calle, trombonist Dana Teboe and guitarist Mike Stern.[3][4]

Vladimir Bogdanov, Chris Woodstra, Stephen Thomas Erlewine 2002 "On this advanced hard bop date, the music is strictly straight-ahead without any Latin rhythms. .. Other highlights include the moody "Streets Of Desire" (on which Sandoval plays piano), the racehorse tempo of "Real McBop" (which has an impossible but impeccably played melody chorus) and Arturo's humorous use of the plunger mule on "It Never Gets Old." All in all, this is one of Arturo Sandoval's finest recordings to date.
