MUSIC REVIEW BY George Fendel, Jazz Scene

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Although one has to deal with smog, jammed freeways and 16 jillion people, LA's okay if you're a big band leader. That's because you can find monsters like Bobby Shew, Pete Christlieb and Carl Saunders to play in your band. And if you know your turf pretty well, there are tons of additional first rate players to fill those band chairs. This is what leader Chris Walden has done. His is music with swagger; arranged to showcase both the sizzling sound of the band AND the equally well honed skills of the soloists, big names or not. The tunes, whether original charts or standards, are all fresh and invigorating. ****1/2
