CD Reviews

George Williams and his Orchestra
10/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Given the period that the original recordings were done, the quality of the tracks on this CD is absolutely incredible. I had not heard of George Williams until a friend played it for me and I was just knocked out by the clear uncluttered arrangements of the tunes and the fresh approach he had to the many standards on the disc. As an arranger who does transcribing this CD is a dream come true."

"Simply put this is a great compilation of two albums. In the late fifties recording technology finally was able to capture high fidelity sound only to find that- you guessed it, most of the big bands were disbanded. Thankfully not this one. i own thousands of big band recordings and would easily place this in the top 10 percent. The arrangements are not the typical "Best OF.." stuff. The recording is clear with lots of presence, crisp highs, capturing people who are enjoying what they are playing. Don't miss this one!"
