Big Band Record

Genre: Jazz; Lead Performer: Ray Anderson; Producer (group): Gamavision

The most extraordinary trombonist of our time is teamed with one of Europe’s pre-eminent jazz orchestras, that of Swiss pianist-composer-arranger George Gruntz. But the anticipated magic doesn’t always happen on Big Band Record. Ray Anderson’s facility inspires awe, but the arrangements- while inventive and surprising-are often so thickly written that the trombonist’s personality gets smothered.
