All hands on deck - it's a big band episode! The boys look at two "historical" releases - one an oddity from the 1950's, the other a pace-setter from the nineties, and then dig into three brand new releases by large units. Lots of musings from Pat about the pro's and con's of large ensemble jazz, but hey, that's what the fast-forward button is for. Stay tuned for a heart-felt endorsement of Scott Walker's misanthropic "Scott 2." Sauter-Finnegan Orchestra – NEW DIRECTIONS IN MUSIC; Mingus Big Band – LIVE IN TIME (disc 1); Spanish Harlem Orchestra – ANNIVERSARY; Ralph Peterson – I REMEMBER BU; Charles Pillow – ELECTRIC MILES.
