Slightly false advertising but otherwise good..,
This review is from: Jazz In Film (Audio CD)
The album is fantastic, the brass are a tight section, they can be easily seconded by Jools Holland's brass section but not easily topped by many others i've heard. The rhythm and imparticular the bass and drums keep the band together but offer a side interest in many of the peices with some tasteful and subtle drumming hiding in solos etc. The downfall of this band is the name: National Youth Jazz Orchestra is a little white lie as most players did start off playing with them when younger (17/18)but they are now in their twenties and the band is unwillingly to let these go, and replace them with a fresher and rawer selection of players for the sake of their reputation.

NYJO has always been for players under 25 and there is no lying involved about the ages of the bands that have gigged and recorded as NYJO since 1965.
