  • May 12, 2008 Do we really know how to swing today?

    It's really amazing how music changed. This seems to be a nice arrangement. It is close to Benny Carter's arrangement, however not transcribed. But boy, what a difference in playing to the original recording! When you listen to the sample file, you can hear a capable big band...

    , the Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army Field Band doing a tribute for Benny Carter. Then turn to Carter's recording from 1937, London (!) and you'll be enlighted in every swingin molecule. The saxes, the trumpets, the rhythm section, everybody goes to town! The sample given here is just elevator music. They are not even trying to get close, this is what really makes me turn away in annoyance. Calling this "Jazz Ambassador" or even "Legacy of Benny Carter" is a big lie. Every MD must listen to the original recording and try to get the band pick up those marvelous slurs and bends, which make the music come alive. Then and only then this Dave Wolpe arrangement could be nice one on the set list.
