Dave Slonaker Big Band 3/2013

Wow – what an amazing project! We recorded this in 2012 at Capitol studio A, and mixed it the last few weeks. Dave is an extremely gifted composer and arranger who’s career has been mostly orchestrating for film; the list of films he’s worked on goes on and on, but I knew Dave from Eastman as a big band writer. He’s gone back to that for this CD, and got an incredible line up: Peter Erskine, Ed Zach, Edwin Livingston, Larry Koonse, Bob Sheppard, Brian Scanlon, Rob Lockhart, Wayne Bergeron, Dan Fornero, Clay Jenkins, Ron Stout, Bill Reichenbach, Bob McChesney, Alex Isles, etc, etc…

Anyway, great writing, great playing, some amazing solos – a fantastic CD.
