Best big band album for ages!
on September 5, 2005
This new Clayton-Hamilton album has to be one of the best and most exciting big band records to be released over the past few years. The arrangements by John Clayton are exquisite; along with his arco bass playing and Jeff Hamilton`s drumming is sheer power and beauty!! The soloists are great and it`s nice to see veteran trumpeter "Snooky" Young hanging in there. I cannot fault any of the tracks. If you enjoyed the old Thad Jones/Mel Lewis orchestra you`.re going to love this one
