Synopsis

Album Description
The authenticity of these early big band classics, is as though a great band has been magically transported from that early era, to today, and placed in a superb recording facility to make some remarkable recordings. The genius who arranged, conducted, and played on these sessions is Heinz Shöneberger. Listen to his beautifully flowing liquid clarinet solos. A wonderfully refreshing mixture of early band classics, and excellent new compositions to match the feel and mood of the early band period. Includes: "Lovers Leap", "Music Makers", "Easy to Say", "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans", "Pony Tail", and many more.

Big Band Still Lives
Philip R. Watlington | 07/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Thank goodness for big bands like the Mainstream Power Band and Spitfire Band. These are possibly the two best "living" big bands of this day. Their music is full of life, wonderful arrangements, and I feature both these bands each week on my Big Band radio show. I only wish I knew of still more bands out there of this calibre, and how to get their recordings."
