Mad To The Bone Price: $18.00
You won’t find a better big band, or recording in the US! This is a swingin’ band out of Northern Pennsylvania, with excellent section work, and some terrific solos. This had to be one happy recording session! Watrous is outstanding, as usual!<br /><blockquote><br />'A few months ago, Rob Stoneback, my good friend, set up a recording session for his band and myself. We had been talking about it for a few years, and it finally happened. The band is sensational as you will hear on this disk! I had a ball doing this project, and I have a gut feeling that you will get a kick out of what came off. Rob’s the BEST!'<br /><br /> -- Bill Watrous<br /></blockquote><br />Whether you’re a big band fan, a jazz fan, or a Bill Watrous fanatic, you are going to love this recording. With the exception of 'Basie' by Ernie Wilkins, every piece of music is newly recorded. This includes 'Oh!' which is an Ernie Wilkins blues he wrote for the Count Basie Band. It was supposed to be on the legendary 'Chairman Of The Board' album, but the parts were lost right before the recording session. ENJOY!
