MUSIC REVIEW BY George Fendel, Oregon Jazz Scene

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

When I hear a big band playing nearly all original material, I'm looking for intricacy, creative arrangements, scintillating solos and melody lines that don't enter the land of confusion. And that's just what we have in this Los Angeles gathering of undoubtedly some of the finest players in Smogville. Oddly, the only standard in the set is "It's Only a Paper Moon." The rest of the selections are outstanding examples of current big band writing. Fresh and invigorating, and highly listenable, this is some premium stuff!
