CD Reviews

You say you like the sound of big band, well stay tuned
Philip Scott | U.S.A. | 08/17/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you really are a big band fan, this cd is for you. This is one of the best big bands to come along in 40 years. If you have longed for to go back to the "good ol' days" this cd will help you to that return. This band is different than most modern day bands. It employes the old traditional instruments that the true big bands used. For example: this band uses all acoustic instruments meaning piano, bass, drums, etc. No artifical sound is used by this band. Thank goodness for this.The song selection used on this cd is good to great. The arrangments are pleasing. So what are you waiting for, buy this cd and let the good times begin!I Would Like To Strongly Recommend This Cd"
THIS CD IS ONE OF THERE BETTER CDS.

"I AM HOOKED ON BIG BAND MUSIC, I MUST ADMIT. THIS ALBUM HAS BEEN A THRILL FOR ME. I HAVE PLAYED IT MANY TIMES AND STILL ENJOY IT. OF THE 12 SONGS LISTED I LIKE 8. THAT'S WHY I RATED IT A 4."

"I happened upon the Spitfire Band quite by accident, as I am constantly looking for "big band" music to use on my weekly radio show. I was amazed when I discovered this outstanding orchestra, as it is as good as most of the big bands from the 30s and 40s, and in my opinion, out shines many of them. If you like big band music, any of the Spitfire CDs should please you. Their arrangements of the standards rival the originals. Never a week goes by that I don't feature several of their songs on my show, the "Sunday Morning Swing Shift" on WBTM. I look forward to their next CD, and would love to attend a live performance of this superb orchestra."
