ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a live CD recorded at the Times Bar and Café in Minneapolis in 2007.

The Wolverines were founded in 1973, performing transcriptions of the music of the “hot” orchestras, popular between the World Wars. House gigs in the early years included such Jazz Age nightspots as Scottie’s On Seventh, the Commodore, and Castle Royale.

They opened for Sarah Vaughan and Manhattan Transfer, and performed on the initial broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion. Their first four albums received the coveted four star review in Downbeat Magazine. They even played Jimmy Carter’s Inaugural Ball.

Now in their 38th year, led by drummer Jendeen Forberg, the Wolverines Big Band continues to perform their matchless repertoire. Covering a wide range of styles, this includes the best of the bands led by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson and more.
