The best little big band ever?
(5 out of 5 stars)

"listen to this album and try to forget the size of the ensemble. Sounds like a big band, not an expanded combo. Tight rhythm, great horns (maynard, of course, but his support staff is superb). only thing better than this album is seeing the group live (if you get the chance, do it!)"
Maynard still swinging after all these years!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

""These Cats Can Swing" is vintage Maynard at his best! For such a small band this group produces a sound that most larger groups dream of. Although all seven tracks are good, you have to check out their interpretation of Duke Ellington's "Caravan". Also two tracks include vocals!!. What makes this CD even better is that, while Maynard demonstrates he can still hit the high notes, he doesn't rely on them to drive the music. GREAT STUFF!!!"
M.F. belts out a powerful Big Band sound | Edmonton | 06/13/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After spending the last few albums in combos, it's good to have Maynard back where he belongs -- in front of a red-hot, high energy Big Band. (Well, actually a medium-sized band -- 4 brass, 2 saxes, rhythm -- but it SOUNDS like a big band!). His rendition of CARAVAN is fresh and hot. And although he's not the greatest singer on the block, but his novelty song "He Can't Swing" (criticizing all those jazz-wannabes) should be the used as the international anthem of good jazz players! A thoroughly enjoyable CD."
