If you like Big Band with a distinct flavor of the 1920s era arrangements, you will fall in love with this lively collection of tunes. There are 20 songs in the collection.
The cover art shows a 1920s band playing alongside a red 1920s automobile and fits in nicely with the songs. Each song is a gem of 1920s expression musically, and among the lively tunes are found such songs as "Thinking Of You," "Shim-Me-Sha-Wobble," "Sugarfoot Stomp," "The Charleston," A great rendition of "Puttin' On The Ritz," "My Blue Heaven," "A Jazz Holiday," among others. Each song captures the essence of the big band sound of the 1920s perfectly.
A fun, enjoyable CD, GARY LAWRENCE AND HIS SIZZLING SYNCOPATORS will entertain the jazz listening audience. A showcase for big band 1920s sound! Excellent.
