Fiona's Comments

After happening upon this exhilarating track in our archives, I decided to re-feature it for Big Band Friday. It's the immense sound that I think I love most about big band compositions, and this track nails it right from the start. Just a breathtaking tune. I'll be looking to feature a new release from these guys in the near future, but for now, enjoy this older tune.

About the Album

Multi-instrumentalist Vince Norman and drummer Joe McCarthy gather together some of the finest big band players on the eastern seaboard to create a creative and swinging album of modern jazz. Part big band and part small group workings, the album balances the intensity of the big band with wide open improvisations on nine original compositions by Vince Norman.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
