The H2 Big Band boasts some big names from Los Angeles such as Andy Martin/tb, Ron Stout/tp, gary Foster/as, Larry Koonse/g, Bob McChesney/tb and Chuck Berghofer/bs. Best of all, Joe LaBarbera handles the drums and no one drives a big band better. The brass and reed sections are spectacular, swinging on the bouncy "Hocus Po cus" and delivering an eerie take of "You Go To My Head" with Foster's alto shining through the night. The team sizzles on the New Orleans-ed groove during "B in C" while vocalist Renee' Marie takes ownership of "The Look of Love" and "Autobiography" with Dave Hansen's piano. Everyone gets a chance to solo,and you'll want to take a field trip to LA to find these guys around the local clubs. Toe tapping heaven.
