Claude Bolling Big Band- The Victory Concert
The Victory Concert
By Claude Bolling Big Band
Anyone who enjoys music from the WWII era will like this CD. Claude Bolling has done a fine job of recreating the Big Band sound in this concert, staying very true to the original intent. Two tracks have vocals, "...See the Light" with Laika and "Blues in the Night" by Jeffery Smith.
The liner notes are extensive (10 pages) with pictures. Bolling explains how he was influenced by this music; listening to it on 78's while the Allies liberated Europe, not realizing that one day he would be conducting the same music.
If you have other Claude Bolling CDs, you'll find this one somewhat different and demonstrates his versatility.
