Album Notes
From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, May 31, 2013:

“Seventeen members strong, the Bill Simenson Orchestra is the best local big band you’ve likely never heard. The first Tuesday of each month, it plays a cozy under-the-radar venue with sofas, comfy chairs and great sound — Jazz Central. The band is full of local bar stars (Pete Whitman, Chris Lomheim, et al.), but it’s trumpeter Simenson’s terrific chart-writing that impresses the most. If you enjoy large jazz ensembles, from pioneers Ellington and Basie up to such present-day lights as Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue, you’ll find much to like. (8-10:30 p.m. Tue., Jazz Central, 407 Central Av. SE., Mpls. $10 suggested donation) Surowicz”

The Bill Simenson Orchestra has been performing monthly at Jazz Central Studios in Minneapolis since June of 2012 and features some of the Twin Cities' finest musicians. The band's debut recording, "Big Alpaca," was recorded in January of 2016.
