Album Notes
“…The dreamy “I Do Know What Love Is” lives up to its title with full exploitation of the horn sections (three saxes, two trumpets, two trombones). “Fat Cat Theme” is a blistering version of large-scale bebop … Overall, [Synstelien] and the band deserve high marks for adding to the legacy of big-band music rather than emulating the past glories of it.”
