Julie Nicolay

Band kicks a**!
The instrumentalists on this recording are hot, no doubt about that. They're tight, accomplished and sound amazing! The vocals, however, are not up to par and that's too bad. This CD really jumps and swings, but a different vocalist with more pizzazz would really make this a 5-star disc. Like the previous reviewer, I got a bit bored with the vocals but LOVED the band!

Romain RIES

All pieces playing by the Big Band are very good, but the perfomance of the vocals are not very groovy. the voices are a little bit boring, but the band is great.
