Album Review: 'Big Band Record' (1994)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Ray Anderson; Genre: Jazz

If you don't know the music of Ray Anderson, don't be fooled by the guy's generic, swing-era name. Young, smart, and fearlessly adventurous, the composer-trombonist lovingly employs the orchestral jazz form at the same time he playfully turns it inside out. A David Hajdu
