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.

There is a rich tradition of big band ensembles in the Czech lands and in Slovakia and the Gustav Brom Big Band is one of the most highly regarded among both internal and foreign big bands.

Since his emergence in the 1980s as the driving creative force behind UK big band Loose Tubes, Django Bates has been cheerfully subverting expectations, slaughtering scared cows and generally making a euphonious nuisance of himself, but he’s really gone and done it this time.

Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts returns to his jazz roots with the Danish Radio Big Band on this album, recorded live in 2010. Watts and the band rehearsed for four days before playing a concert at the newly opened Danish Radio Concert Hall in Copenhagen which was taped for broadcast by Danish National Radio. After several years, a souvenir of that historic gig is now available. Watts is one of the great ambassadors of jazz and while every jazz lover will relish the performance, his involvement may bring jazz to the attention of some Stones fans who are not even sure if they like jazz.

Phronesis have built a formidable reputation over the last decade as one of the most powerful and energetic small ensembles on the European jazz scene. Known for their virtuosity, dynamism and telepathic group interplay, the trio have commanded impressive media attention and established a substantial fanbase on a global level. Following six critically acclaimed trio albums, the band have now completed their most ambitious recording to date with the release of The Behemoth. Consisting of ten arrangements and re-imaginings of compositions from their back catalogue by Julian Argüelles, this remarkable, vibrant new album featuring the Frankfurt Radio Big Band is rich in colour and bursting with spirit and creativity.

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.
