CD Reviews

Sam's Navy "Rangers" Swing Out!
Timothy A. Quale | Ogden, Utah | 05/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Holy Cow does this thing swing like crazy! The finest group of all the "War" bands assembled. The trumpet section alone makes the knees buckle - Conrad Gozzo,Frank Beach, Johnny Best and Don Jacoby! Sam basically took over Artie Shaws Navy Orchestra, but turned it into a more "Basie" styled swing outfit. And boy did he succeed!! Check out "C Jam Blues" , "Convoy" and "Moten Swing" . Thank goodness HEP put this CD out, its must listening for any fan of Big Bands."
