O’s Notes: Big Band Director Ira B. Liss produces a swinging set of“Tasty Tunes“fortified with standout musicians including Holly Hoffman (fl), Eric Marienthal (sax), Bob Mintzer (sax) and Dean Brown (g). The band is popping from the jazzed up arrangement of “You Don’t Know What Love Is” to the racy “Manhattan Burn” featuring guitarist Alex Ciavarelli and trumpeter Peter Green. Janet Hammer adds vocals on “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was” and two others but it is the instrumental power that makes this Jazz Machine Work!
