Album Review

The second of three releases by the GRP All-Star Big Band (headed by Dave Grusin) has lots of exciting moments, including "Manteca," "Blue Train," and a version of "Cherokee" that has tradeoffs by trumpeters Arturo Sandoval, Randy Brecker, Byron Stripling, and Chuck Findley. The band performs eight jazz standards plus Grusin's "Blues for Howard." Also among the highlights are the playing of Brecker and Eric Marienthal on "My Man's Gone Now," the teaming of clarinetist Eddie Daniels and vibraphonist Gary Burton on "Sing, Sing, Sing," and the interplay between pianists Grusin and Russell Ferrante on "'S Wonderful."

Customer Reviews

Big Band

I want jazz players to create more big band music like this. Anyway I love this band.

Need I Say More?

Arturo Sandoval plays really high. Dave Weckl swings really hard. Bob Mintzer's fingers move really fast. The band plays like no other big band ever assembled. See above.
