"The Royal Society Jazz Orchestra sounds like a band from the late 20's to mid 30's, however they don't re-create note for note, they have their own arrangements taht sound 30's-ish. On this CD which celebrates Don Neely's Royal Society Jazz Orchestra's 20th Anniversary live, are such talented vocalsists as Carla Normand(a Mildred Bailey/Lee Wiley influenced singer)and and Jeff Gilbert(a Crosby/Herb Jeffries influenced crooner). Some good ut brief jazz solos, since this is more 30's oriented dance music, it is somewhat jazz oriented. This CD is fun, but the best tracks feature Norman's highly appealing vocals, and Neely's sax palying is also good."
Excellent music of the 20's
