"A few years ago I picked up a CD in a used record store titled "Bob Mintzer - Camouflage". After the first time hearing it I wondered why anyone would get rid of it. It was tight, had great musicians, wonderful melodies, and solos that swang. Their loss was my find. This CD, "The First Decade", is a best-of collection of Mintzer's finest. Again, everything you'd want in a big band is here. And the horses playing on it! Michael and Randy Becker, Peter Erskine, Don Grolnick, Marvin Stamm, and the list goes on! Michael Franks even sings a version of "My Foolish Heart". Mintzer's band has been criticized for being "too tight". Well, what other way would you want it?"
