All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
Vince DiMartino is a graduate of the University of Kentucky's very fine jazz studies program headed by Miles Osland. He and Osland share top billing on this CD, which gives the listener more than 75 minutes of outstanding, disciplined, and exciting big-band music. Osland's influence is prevalent throughout the set. The sound is strikingly similar to those albums he has issued for Sea Breeze and other labels with various Kentucky jazz groups, small and large. Typical of any jazz pack with which Osland is associated, this band is well rehearsed. The ensemble play is tight and dynamic, as with the sax section on the sensuous "Spring Is Here."

All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
Vince DiMartino is a graduate of the University of Kentucky's very fine jazz studies program headed by Miles Osland. He and Osland share top billing on this CD, which gives the listener more than 75 minutes of outstanding, disciplined, and exciting big-band music. Osland's influence is prevalent throughout the set. The sound is strikingly similar to those albums he has issued for Sea Breeze and other labels with various Kentucky jazz groups, small and large. Typical of any jazz pack with which Osland is associated, this band is well rehearsed. The ensemble play is tight and dynamic, as with the sax section on the sensuous "Spring Is Here." Soloists improvise, but within the parameters of the arrangements written for each piece. This philosophy is apparent right from the initial cut, "Real Life," as Osland's throbbing alto sax is pushed by the brass instruments in ensemble and by a throw-down-the-gauntlet trumpet solo. The written arrangements present the music at its best and permit the band to show off its finest points, as in Charles Mingus' "Pussy Cat Dues," with the sax and brass section trading chords while Larry Nelson's bass pays homage to master Mingus. But the drumming is Osland's most recognizable influence; he understands that -- no matter how good the arrangements and how talented the players -- no band is worth its salt unless it has a drummer who can both drive the aggregation and rein it back in when necessary. On this set, it's Jason Tiemann who performs this function critical to Osland's scheme of things, particularly evident when Tiemann provides the rhythmic foundation for "My Secret Love," with trumpet players DiMartino and Rob Parton waxing eloquently and stratospherically on this pop tune made popular by Doris Day. This album is a sterling example of how the big band can fit well into the contemporary jazz scene without losing any of the unique sound that continues to send tingles up and down the spines of listeners -- whether the band is tooting a barnburner or caressing a ballad. Highly recommended.
