5.0 out of 5 stars Swingin' For The Fences: Big Band For The 21st Century, May 14, 2000
This review is from: Swingin' for the Fences (DVD)
If you're a big band fan and own a DVD player, this DVD is an absolute must! This DVD features the comical and brilliant writing of L.A. composer/saxist Gordon Goodwin. This DVD also features the flawless work of some of L.A.'s top echelon studio musicians -- including Dan Higgins, Alex Iles, Andy Martin, Bill Reichenbach, Jerry Hey, Gary Grant, Dennis Farias, and Wayne Bergeron -- to name a few. Perhaps what makes the DVD most intriguing is the 6-channel surround sound format in which it's recorded -- absolutely incredible! -- Every nuance of the playing can be heard and the playing IS pristine. Mr. Goodwin also brings aboard burnin' soloists -- like Eddie Daniels, Arturo Sandoval, Brandon Fields, and Eric Marienthal -- to make it all complete.
I knew about this project about six months before its arrival, and I waited frantically for it to be released. This DVD has lived up to my expectations and WAY beyond! There has NOT been a better project done within the past decade. Thank you Mr. Goodwin and company.
