CD Reviews

A New Band That's Really On Fire
Chuck Hepner | Bucyrus, Ohio | 01/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a Jazz, and Swing fan for decades.This new Spitfire band is the best I have ever heard. Bright, crisp, and on fire. Every score is a keeper. I can't wait for more of their work to be recorded. Their lead trumpet and trombone men are not to be believed, they're that good. If you like Jazz, and Swing, this CD is a must."
THIS IS A CD THAT YOU WILL LIKE.

"THIS WILL BE THE 5TH SPITFIRE BAND CD THAT I HAVE PURCHASED. IT IS A GOOD CD. MOST OF THE ARRANGEMENTS ARE OK. OUT OF 13 TRACKS LISTED I LIKED 8."
This is the greatest band to come along since Si Zentner
Philip Scott | U.S.A. | 08/08/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Wow! What a great band. This band has got to be the best discovery in the last 40 years. The last great band i can remember is Si Zentner.This band sure knows how to play. They are a high energy band. It's impossible to listen to them without getting your heart rate up. Another thing that has impressed me about this band is their song selection. They seems to have the right blend of old songs and fairly new ones. The style they play in is the old time style.I think any one wanting to relive the glory days of the big bands will want to listen to this cd.I Would Like To Strongly Recommend This Cd"
