Put on your dancing shoes and jive the night away. Standards like In the Mood and When the Saints Come Marching In will put a new lift in your step. Instrumentation includes saxophones, trumpets, trombones, French horn, piano, guitar, bass & drums. When I was a kid, back in the '60's, my dad listened to a group of records called "The Swing Era"… I believe from Time-Life. I grew up loving the swing rhythms and stylings of "Little Brown Jug", "Take The 'A' Train, and "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" as they popped and hissed out of our giant console stereo. I've tried digitally remastered versions of the originals, like "Glenn Miller-A Memorial", but have always been disappointed by, well, the pops and hiss, and the generally low fidelity that these great old songs were recorded with… not their fault! But "In The Big Band Mood" faithfully recaptures the music in new recordings by Michael Maxwell and his orchestra, and their rendition of what I consider to be one of the most perfect pieces of music of all time - "In The Mood" - is excellent. I highly recommend this album!

James Last was a German big-band leader with a large fan base in Europe, although he never had a comparable following in the United States. Last's trademark was arranging pop hits in a big-band style; his series of "party albums" became equally well-known. Over the course of his career, he sold well over 50 million albums.

By the time Oliver Nelson and his big band had recorded Fantabulous in March of 1964 for Argo, the great composer, saxophonist, conductor, and arranger was a man about town in New York. He had released some truly classic dates of his own as a leader in smaller group forms – Blues and the Abstract Truth and Full Nelson among them – and had done arrangement work for everyone from Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and Johnny Hodges, Nancy Wilson, Frank Wess, King Curtis, Etta Jones, Jimmy Smith, Jack Teagarden, Betty Carter, Billy Taylor, and Gene Ammons, to name more than a few. For Fantabulous, he took his working big band to Chicago for a gig sponsored by Daddy-O-Daylie, a famous local disc jockey.

One of the giants of the alto saxophone, Johnny Hodges was perhaps the most important soloist and sideman in Duke Ellington's orchestra from 1928 up to Hodges' death in 1970. The self-taught player made many solo forays during his long career - one of his '50s outfits included a young John Coltrane - but history remembers Hodges for his virtuosic sidemanship, particularly his sensitive rendering of ballads.

Skyliner was one of Charlie Barnet's most exciting hit records, and quickly became as closely identified with his big band as was Ray Noble's Cherokee. This 1996 EPM Musique Jazz Anthology compilation is one of at least six Barnet albums with the word "Skyliner" in the title. Tracks one through twelve were recorded for the Bluebird label between June 19, 1940 and April 30, 1942. Tracks thirteen through twenty follow Barnet's progress through the turbulent wartime years with a trail of Decca sides cut between July 1942 and February 1944. "Skyliner" comes from a V-Disc recorded on July 13, 1944; "E-Bob-O-Lee-Bob," like "Oh Miss Jaxon" a vocal feature for trumpeter Peanuts Holland, was harvested from a Jubilee broadcast on December 6, 1945. Some of this band's arrangements were written by Horace Henderson, Billy May and by the leader himself. Most Charlie Barnet albums are well worth investigating. This one lives somewhere near the top of the heap.

Genre: jazz

This Skin Deep CD consists of the two 10" LP's Louie Bellson recorded for Norman Granz's Norgran label, the material of which was later released on the 12" LP called Skin Deep. Duke Ellington fans may know of "Skin Deep" from the brilliant studio version on his Ellington Uptown album. When Bellson left Ellington's band, he recorded a version under his own name, a version that is equally as brilliant, and formed a legacy in his own right. Each 10" EP is distinct from the other, one with him as part of a quintet, the other with a big band. This is the Verve Elite Edition released on 27 July, 1999, remastered by Kevin Reeves.
