O’s Notes: If you recall the brassy power and dynamics of Stan Kenton’s best big bands, you will appreciate this effort. The band is conducted by Bill Russo, a trombonist from Stan’s big band. The music includes the sizzle of “23¼ North 82¼ West”, the romance of “Loverman” and fine vocals from Vicki Stokes on “Ain’t No Misery” and Bobbi Wilsyn on “Shoo Fly Pie”.
