Jeff Lindberg and his venerable crew start flirting with middle age as they enter their 35th year with spring in their joints and bounce in their steps. Keeping the memory of the great arrangers alive while featuring some up and comers and showcasing a new jazz vocalist that knows the swing is the thing, this is a full on orchestra, kicking it out in a live concert hall with good acoustics, the only way to get them all on stage at the same time and in synch. Not at all nostalgic, they might be dipping in to the classic songbag but they are doing living, breathing versions of songs that have lives of their own anyway. Killer stuff that any jazzbo who doesn't follow the dictates of the jazz police will utterly flip for. Easily top work by a top crew that more than goes the distance.
