BigPhatChat is Gordon Goodwin's podcast
||Big Phat Chat Episode 13||Gordon talks about recent news, answers fan mail, gives a somewhat self-indulgent yet informative compositional analysis of his Grammy nominated composition "Hunting Wabbits 3" and presents part 2 of his interview with Grammy and Emmy winning composer Patrick Williams. That last bit, that's the good stuff, don't miss it or you are lame! OK, maybe not lame, but you are really going to miss out, put it that way. Recorded 12-22-11.||12/28/2011||Free||View in iTunes|
||Big Phat Chat Episode 12||Gordon talks about the production of some new Big Phat Band music videos, his trip to Australia where he played with James Morrison and judged at the Generations in Jazz Festival, and presents part one of his interview with Grammy and Oscar winning composer Patrick Williams.

||Big Phat Chat Episode 11||Gordon grovels and apologizes for the year long delay in producing a new podcast (it's quite pathetic) and presents for your enjoyment the legendary and somewhat underexposed (for a good reason) Big Phat Band Comedy Sketches.

From one of the best big bands on the scene, if not THE best, the music played is performed incredibly, the interviews are funny and ispirational coming from members of the Phat Band that are all the top musicians in their given fields, and it keeps the music of big bands alive and well. I look forward to the next podcast everytime I hear the most recent episode. A must-have for any jazz/big band enthusiast.
Entertaining, short, and to the point!
Gordon Goodwin's sense of humor and knowledable insight on jazz music made this podcast enjoyable to listen to. I look forward to hearing more from this jazz genius!
For anyone who enjoys these great big band albums, this should be a must. So far, great!
