The bone section on Donna Lee, is one of the most awesome sounds I have ever heard. Some of the charts are sequenced on a Yamaha DX-7 and are okay but not great. What is amazing about them is that Matt plays all sax parts, drums, piano and bass on regular instruments, plus the brass parts on the DX-7...he is good at all of them.
Matt has a tremendous talent of taking familiar tunes and using the chord progressions and melodies (or pieces of it) and making an entirely new sound. For example, The Umpire Stikes Back is really Take Me Out To The Ball Game and Indian Riffs is a smokin' version of Cherokee...He is very talented!
The real band is just amazing and worth the cost of the CD!!

This is truly an amazing album, and yes there are real big bands throughout the world playing these Cattingub charts - but on this album a lot of the parts are played on synth. And Matt explains all of this on the sleeve notes.
But don't be put off by this innovative approach - Matt really swings whatever instrument he is playing.
There is also one more track than listed - a version on 'Every Breath You Take' done in a 'New York, New York' stylie.
Buy it and enjoy.

This Cattingub release is another great effort by an outstanding writer, arranger, and performer. His big band swings throughout this album and should please any fan of big band music. Remember, this is the guy that gave us "Blues and the Abcessed Tooth," which he revisits on the album. Fun stuff.

The band is tight. It is one of the best bands I've heard since big band. The writings of Catingub are just unbelievable. The Trombone section, especially in Donna Lee, is outstanding.
