Big Band at its finest!
Andrea McNeely
One of my favorite big band tunes... it never gets old!
Thomas Briggs
Saw them at the Blue Note in the '80s, sitting about 3 feet in front of the the first tier of players. Blew my hair back.
One of the tightest, most swingin' bands ever. Along with Basie, Jones/Lewis, and Doc, this album, and this tune on particular, was the reason I got into jazz. Simply one of the best.
One of the best big band charts of all time, played by one of the tightest, if not THE tightest bands of all time.

I was fortunate enough to have seen this band live several times. Even more impressive live. Yes, Bobby Shew on lead. He was not the best high note player. Great range, but better scream players. One of the best lead players ever, for sure. If you're a fan, his small group recordings from the 1980s onward are all great. He played lead for Louie Bellson at about the same time. He's a monster.

Saw them at the Ojai Music Festival. At the time their first album had just come out (I think) and she was selling them from the trunk of her car. As I remember some stravinsky was played as well. What a GREAT weekend!
Anyone know who the drummer is?  And yea, this is crazy tight and swingin'!

Does anyone know if it's true that Dick Spencer (the alto soloist) sold his horns and became a horse rancher?
