Description

The made-for-radio recordings offered here make an interesting comparison with Billy May's commercial records of the 1950s period. Whilst the same base arrangements were generally used, the soloists had freedom to improvise. There is also a comparisonto be made between the performance by May's studio orchestra made up of the cream of Los Angeles session musicians and that of his road band where the majority of the musicians were relatively unknown youngsters. In fact, the performances sound just as exciting and original in the hands of the youngsters as they did performed by the seasoned studio professionals. A worthwhile Jasmine issue of interest to all Billy May and general Big Band fans which also contains titles not recorded commercially. Great value Two-CDs-for-the-Price-of-One, 109 minute set.
