CD Reviews

This one gives you goosebumps!!!!
Joachim Tromark | Sweden | 04/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you don't have a cd with Bobby Shew, make sure this one will be your first. Bobby plays his heart out on this one accompanied by the great Metropole orchestra wich is a big band and symphony orchestra in one. The Metropole orchestra is a dutch band led by the great composer/arranger Rob Pronk and it's definitely one of the finest orchestras in Europe. If you love albums like Clifford with strings this is something for you.
Wonderful performances and the string arrangements are gorgious.
Specially noteable is trumpeter Jan Oosthof for being one of the absolute best lead players I've ever heard. Beautiful and rich sound and he delivers a great swinging feel to the band.
He also never miss a note. As Bobby said "If he does you don't wanna be around him"."
