“Fans have enjoyed this “feel-good” style of music for generations – following our extensive UK tour I’m excited to be bringing the sound of our big band brass, saxes, rhythm and vocalists back home.”
As seen on BBC TV “Children in Need” and Dame Vera Lynn’s Charity Ball, the show is led by bandleader Chris Smith Jr, composer and arranger for the BBC Radio Big Band and a former composer for Herb Miller Big Band, the brother of Glenn Miller.
Along with Tony Bennett’s trombonist also featured is vocalist and saxophonist Simone, who was taught to play alto saxophone in the 1980s by the famous bandleader Ivy Benson, whom she subsequently performed with.
