new york city! "absolutely mesmerizing", "two thumbs up",
"a certified new classic"! "ya,gotta hear it to believe it"
that's how music lovers are describing the latest cd release by the walt procanyn orchestra from new york city.
walt, is the genre busting band leader whose music has been in the running for a grammy for best "pop instrumental" alongside such luminaries as burt bacharach and ramsey lewis. he is considered by many to be one of the best band leaders in the country.walt's style is melodic and very interesting. you've gotta hear it to believe it! his orchestra is well polished and is at home playing big band and polka as well as ballads, jump, jive and ragtime. you will once again be treated to walt's distinguished vocal group singing "where does time go", "o",johnny"o", hey, mr. band man and "do,i hear a polka", plus a spectacular rendition of "god bless america". walt, will present, for the very first time, his new trumpet virtuso charly raymond
(your heart will soar and you will believe)!hear him play ciribiribin, tiger rag(on a pocket trumpet),and stardust.
walt compares charly's tenique on the trumpet to that of the great harry james, al hirt, and clyde mccoy. this is big band and polka at it's very best.
