  • The big band sounds wind down on Richie Palys' "Tina's Glass Nickel" and 's familiar "Blues in Hoss' Flat" completing another incredibly powerful and rich-sounding large orchestration album sending a message that big band music is alive and well. Dearborn Station not only provides a platform for the great Randy Brecker clearly, one of the all-time masters of the horn, but also reaffirms the notion that the DePaul University Jazz Ensemble, continues to be one of the premier college bands in the country, professional in every way.

    The Chicago-based DePaul University Jazz Ensemble recorded this material at the Jazz Showcase over two nights in April 2011. Drummer/composer/educator Jeff Hamilton joins for six of the CD’s 10 tracks. The recording showcases the very strong playing of the ensemble, the fine contributions of several members as composers and/or arrangers, and Hamilton’s swinging versatility.

    Some of us are old enough to remember double features, but they were in movie theatres, not concert halls or recording studios, and, as memory serves, were never quite as enchanting or memorable as this one. The first half of this elegant Double Feature showcases the " data-original-title="" title=""> Orchestra in two concerts, from the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco (February 1959) and Chicago's Blue Note (one month later). The second half, encompassing studio sessions from February and April 2010 by the splendid DePaul University Jazz Ensemble, consists of seventeen charts from the Kenton book that were never recorded until now.
