As good as it gets,
This review is from: Complete Live Recordings at Ronnie Scott's February 1969 (Audio CD)
In February 1969 the Clarke Boland Band played an incendiary two week residency at Ronnie Scott's club in Soho. Everyone who saw it will never forget. It is our good fortune that one of the evenings was recorded. I bought the two vinyl albums from that gig as soon as they were released and have played them to death since then. They have now been re released on this single CD and for me it's Christmas come early.
Make no mistake this is one of the great big bands and features some of the cream of American and European talent, and this album shows them at the top of their powers, and album is both exiting and satisfying in equal amounts.
The album comes as a digipak with all the original sleeve notes and photographs and the sound is excellent.
If you care about jazz and especially big band jazz you NEED this album in your collection, I can promise you will not be disappointed.
