Synopsis

Album Description
Gordon Goodwin has built a bigger-than-life reputation with his composing, arranging and musical instrumentation skills. He combines all these talents on XXL, his second creation as ringleader for the Big Phat Band. After three Emmy Awards and two Grammy nominations, Gordon is still Hungry for more. The Big Phat Band is Gordon's creation...and his muse. XXL finds a stable full of LA's best Jazz players - Eric Marienthal, Eddie Daniels, Michael Brecker, Peter Erskine and others eighteen deep - wailing alongside their leader. These players have over a dozen Top-10 Jazz albums under their collective belt. Their passion drives Gordon over the Top! Add Three more guest performances and the mix hits full steam. Seven-time Grammy winning vocal group Take 6 checks in for two cuts. Billboard chart-topper Brian McKnight breathes new soul into the Jazz classic "Comes Love." And Johnny Mathis, the man who needs no introduction, arrives to "Let The Good Times Roll." XXL finds Gordon Goodwin at the top of his game. Virtuoso performances abound on the record, by Gordon and all his key companions. Traditional big band music feels more alive than ever. The electric energy at Gordon's sold-out west coast gigs can only testify that the man has something cooking.

Active jazz musician
Pamela A. Crifasi | kansas, usa | 03/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"yeah, im an active jazz musician, and i actually play alot of charts by goodwin. his songs are always fun to play and listen to, adding some edge to jazz. hes a mix of old and new, not leaving the confines of old tiem big band cahrts, but not charting into new grounds as far as modern jazz goes. high paced, rock-ish, swing, out-of-this-world (check out hunting wabbits, its gordon's view of cartoons). fun stuff, definately a good buy,"
Brilliant!

"It's hard to say what is more impressive - the arrangemants or the playing. But one thing is clear: this is a "must own" for lovers of big band music."
SIMPLY AMAZING!

"I had a chance to hear this band live, and it was INCREDIBLE! High Maintenance is one of those songs that you can listen to over and over again without ever getting bored. You can't truly appreciate it until you have tried playing it. The band is just so tight and impressive. There truly isn't anything like it!"
