Overview

Despite the music for a variety of reasons going unreleased for a dozen years, these performances are still fresh, lively, and timeless. Drummer Buddy Charles, who does not play on this CD but does contribute a pair of compositions and arrangements, has led an orchestra in Las Vegas for quite a while. For this set, he mostly utilizes Los Angeles musicians, with the many soloists including pianist Pete Jolly, trumpeter Carl Saunders, trombonists Bill Watrous and Bob McChesney, tenors Pete Christlieb, Gordon Brisker, and Jack Montrose, altoist Gary Foster, and baritonist Jack Nimitz, among others. The arrangements by Charles, Frank Mantooth, Montrose, and Brisker keep the momentum building, making this an easily recommended CD that will delight fans of modern swinging big bands.
