ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Walt Boenig was raised in Beeville, Texas where he began his trombone career at an early age in high school. He then went on to Sam Houston State University where he devoted all his studies to music. His career as a professional trombonist included such road bands as Glenn Miller (under four leaders, Buddy DeFranco, Peanuts Hucko, Buddy Morrow, Jimmy Henderson) Harry
James, Jimmy Dorsey (Leader Lee Castle) and a Tom Jones South Africa tour. Since arriving in Las Vegas in the mid '70's he has performed with the house bands at the many hotels on and off the strip (including the Silver Slipper, Desert Inn, "Lido de Paris" at the Stardust and the musical "Chicago" at Mandalay Bay).

It was 1981 when Walt originated his own big band. The inception of this band brought a freshness, creativity and ingeniousness to Las Vegas. He currently freelances performing at private and public functions, (including conventions, weddings and concerts).

In addition to the big band Walt also leads the Walt Boenig Little Big Band (8 pieces), The Dynamic Trombone Quartet and the Brass Roots Quintet offering a variety of music available to all. Since 1995 Walt has been (and currently is) director of the All Star High School Jazz Band of Las Vegas.

From "A Little Of You" (first CD) to "A Lot Of Us" (new CD) is the innovativeness of the Walt Boenig Big Band, which was released in February 2003; there is a lot of music, a lot of musicians and a lot of arrangers.

He contributes much of his success to his amazing fellow peers for which he has the highest praise and to his exceptionally devoted and faithful fans.

Just wonderful
My chemistry students request this CD to listen to when working at their desks. They love the music. I find the music very relaxing....soothing. The teachers come by at the end of the day to listen with me. This CD is just wonderful.

Debbie Archer

The music was great!
I loved the selections of songs. I hadn't heard some of them in years. My husband is an avid country music fan but thought your CD was fantastic!

John Wright

Jimmy Morgan

Most listenable big band in a long, long time
I am a volunteer d.j. on WKHR - FM 91.5-check us out on the web - www.wkhr.org - we specialize in the big band sound -24/7 , no commercials in stereo - and Walt does it all.Fine group of cats to be sure.

Robert Ball


I've known Walt all my life and find his reditions of these great Big Band numbers refreshing and new though true classics. Wynton M. had better watch out!

Don Crowell

Terrific, right up there with the very best, and the recording too.

Judy Yocum

Some great originals and arrangements by Tommy Check!
Tracks 9,ll and 12 are superb! Hats off to Tommy Check, drummer/arranger! The band is right on target with their execution of these remarkable charts!
