  • December 09, 2013 Sittin in With the Big Band

    Again, songs were well done, but they could have been done in longer duration of time, tunes are too short. hardly any songs in these books for our money. right now they are only got 2 of these volumes on the market, and there too, there should be more like...

    these for sale. I only found 2 and would have wanted to buy more to build up my collection than what I have for this format and quality. Tunes could have been made more difficult and a challenge, a little too much on the easy side. Challenge us players when you make more of these things. The real good musicians would get bored quickly with most play alongs sold today.

  • June 01, 2013 Awesome

    This album is awesome. If you want to play some arrangements and have improv opportunities this album is for you. This volume is a leap up from volume I. This volume is flawless and it is hip. There is one or two tunes that do not provide solo opportunities which...

    was a little disappointing but the rest of the charts do. It really is a genuine Big Band opportunity. I rate this second only to Gordon Goodwin's Big Band Play-a-long.
