Synopsis

Album Description
Al Caiola and the Manhattan Guitars bring us an exciting new, innovative instrumental concept. What you will be hearing is an all guitar array of musicians playing Big Band Classics. Five guitars playing the sax section parts. Six guitars playing the brass section parts, and a rhythm section of bass and rhythm guitars, playing piano and drums. The musicians are an all star group of players who choose to remain anonymous, and just do a "buddy" session for their pal Al Caiola. Al and the Manhattan Guitars are playing the precise solos and arrangements scored for these fabulous and memorable original recordings. Al, playing all the leads and solos, had the performance time of his life, and it sounds like it. The uniqueness of this recording will open the eyes and ears of a lot of young people whose main musical interest is the world of guitar. The high school bands, the high school and college jazz bands, the marching bands that are all comprised of young musicians that have all had some association with some of these classics, will hear what can be done when you want to explore musically, something new and refreshing. For people of an older age, who are familiar with these great classics, we believe they will be thrilled and excited to hear these great standards in a brand new mood. "In the Mood", of today
