O’s Notes: This is a wonderful example of what big band jazz is all about. It is a live performance captured at Alvas Showroom in San Pedro, CA on September 15, 2013. The story behind the collaboration is fully documented in the liner notes but Barbara Morrison and Ernie Andrews delivers standout vocal performances in front of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, an excellent large ensemble led by Bassist John Clayton, Jeff Clayton (sax) and drummer Jeff Hamilton. The rest of the star-studded band is crisp and well polished. CHJO is very good alone and excellent with the legendary vocalists out front!
