Great side!

"This is a great album. One of my all time favorite. It showcases Jim McNeely's incredibly creative writing, and John Scofield, Marc Johnson and Adam Nussbaum at their best. The WDR band also shines on this side. Every human should own this album. I highly recommend it!"
Not Enough Stars in the Sky for East Coast Blow Out

"East Coast Blow Out is like no other big band album I know. It contains incredibly creative, well developed, mind-blowing, far out, wild, original, intellectual, challenging, and powerful music . . . and it is enjoyable, melodic, deeply rhythmic, soulful, logical, understandable, and appealing.There is a good balance between soloists and ensemble writing. Jim's compositions are superb, as are his piano improvisations and those of guitarist John Scofield. Each piece segues to the next, yet functions well on its own. The performance of the WDR Big Band is excellent. Dig the cool (and simple) lick that begins "Skittish," and listen as Jim, Sco, and Marc Johnson masterfully develop it throughout the composition.If you enjoy contemporary big-band jazz, you simply MUST buy this CD. You just MUST."
