    WARWICK - The village's final concert of the summer should be a swinging good time. The New York Swing Exchange returns to Warwick to close out the very successful 2005 summer concert series with an afternoon show Sunday, Sept. 11, at Railroad Green. The group consists of a 17-piece orchestra — five reeds, four trombones, four trumpets and four rhythm instruments - and vocalist Maureen Morrissey. According to the group's Web site, some members are alumni of the "Big Band" era of the ‘40's, 50's and ‘60's, coming from New York City as well as the recording industry. Some of the other members are from small jazz groups. Add to this the fine vocal work of Maureen Morrissey and it makes a great mix. Most of all, what makes this big, swinging band unique is the musician's love of performing as a group, with the great sounds that come from ensemble jazz and swing, as well as beautiful ballads. This Sunday Warwick residents will again be entertained by this group of talented musicians. Audiences in the past couldn't resist tapping their toes and even dancing to the tunes of yesterday. It's an early start — 3 in the afternoon. Bring your lawn chair and picnic lunch to the Railroad Green for a great summer concert finale.
