Customer Comments

You should hear their rendition of Tuxedo Junction They swing change tempo and volume and keeps interest throughout as brillaint solos follow throughout whereas the band makes Glenn Miller sound plodding as if machine made -yet who got the publicity

What a great band! And what a shame it is almost completely forgotten.
