ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Jazz Radio 88.3 FM San Diego, California:
"The music of VINTAGE JAZZ will give your wig a solid flip! What a solid release! Swell to hear the music of the 20's, 30's & 40's is being kept alive. Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller would be proud." Ida Garcia, Rug Cutter's Swing, Jazz 88.3 FM.

Los Angeles-based Pianist/Composer Richard Geere (Harry James Orch., Glenn Miller Orch., Tex Beneke Orch., Billy Vaughn Orch., Disney) has brought together some of the country's finest vintage jazz players to pay tribute to the 20's, 30's & 40's.

This classic era of America's unique art form is in very good hands, with this collection of all-new compositions and authentic interpretations. There are some wonderful "soundalikes" with The City of Los Angeles All Stars paying tribute to Duke Ellington, Bunny Berigan, Bix, Django, Harry James, Benny Goodman, Fats Waller, Gene Krupa and company.

Swing dancers, jazz historians and "early jazz" lecturers have all been blown away by this album's authenticty. "The players on this new cd are widely acknowledged as the best in Los Angeles, if not the country" comments Geere, a former music director for BBC television. "We've had interest in this album from all over the world, from Japan to the Czech Republic - and it's only just been released!".

All the players are veterans of countless jazz festivals around the world. "The City of Los Angeles All Stars" are dedicated to promoting and preserving classic jazz styles.

If you have any questions regarding any of the players availability (workshops, master classes) they can be reached though geeremusic@earthlink.net.

Enjoy their wonderful playing on this one-of-a-kind cd.

Keep on swingin'
