A great album that allows even a novice jazz listener to enjoy and immerse themselves in the great arrangements & the ensemble big band playing. The combination of the well-known German Bigband & the contemporary jazz tunes works really well & there's great playing & solos all around ******
Nicely composed big band ensembles mix well with jazz solos here. Contemplative pieces work well to create the nostalgic atmosphere evoked by the album photo montage cover. I liked it as a new-comer to this jazz mix. But guys check out In Deep by Lockheart for something even bigger.
