In making this album, a conscious decision was made by the band members to feature scores that were exclusively written for it and although a number of the charts featured here were written by the great Bob Florence & indeed are available on Bob's own albums the charts were actually done for this band first.A must for any Big Band collector.

I recorded these tracks from the Radio, back in the late 80's - early 90's when the BBC were doing their Monday Night Broadcast of Big Band Special. As far as I know ( unless anyone did the same ) I am one of the very few who has these great recordings.As far as I know they have never commercially been released.

A film director once said that you can't make a great film with a weak script. The same goes for bands of any kind be it jazz or rock or any kind. You can't have a great band without a great drummer. A band can get by with an average bassist or guitarist, but not with an average drummer. It's the heartbeat of any band. One of the things that has made the band Rolling Stones what they are is drummer Charlie Watts and his exceptional and unusual drumming skills. For more than 50 years, Watts has been the propulsive engine that has driven this juggernaut.

Jazz-rooted former pop singer Curtis Stigers has made a fine homage to Frank Sinatra’s 1966 Sinatra at the Sands album with Count Basie’s orchestra, recorded live as the original was. Stigers is much more gruff and rugged than a smoothie like Michael Bublé, as hip in his timing as Kurt Elling, if not as unpredictable – and he could hardly be in more cracking company than the Danish Radio Big Band, which catches the punchy Basie sound and the twists of Quincy Jones’s arrangements with immense aplomb.

Recorded live in Copenhagen, 'One More For The Road' features Curtis Stigers along with The Danish Radio Big Band celebrating some of Frank Sinatra's most cherished songs. Encompassing 10 covers, each song was hand-picked by Stigers to honor one of his musical heroes.

This CD is a bit unusual, for it features Stan Kenton in Copenhagen without his orchestra, lending his repertoire and his piano playing to the Danish Radio Big Band. This performance from 1966 was important in gaining recognition for the orchestra, and it also showed that the power of Kenton's music could be transferred to a completely different band.
