Product Notes

Drummer Greg Caputo has always served as a great ambassador for Classic Swing Music. Greg has toured with Count Basie, Artie Shaw, Harry James, Nelson Riddle and Benny Goodman in addition to countless noted jazz artists. Classic Drummer Magazine describes him as 'A Master Drummer who speaks volumes in refined sensibilities with superb technique.' Jazz Times Magazine, Greg Caputo is the 'Keeper of Big Band Drumming' There is nothing he can't handle with ease. Classic Swing with a Modern Drive is a true live recording. All of the charts are single takes before a live audience. This is the way Greg wanted it - the enthusiasm of a live audience fueling a spontaneous, improvisational performance. The band is made up of 17 of America's swingingest players, (alumni of such bands as Buddy Rich, Maynard Ferguson, Tommy Dorsey and Count Basie) and a great vocalist. Legendary alto saxophonist Phil Woods is guest artist. Phil performs two of his original compositions and accompanies vocalist Viv Murray on Skylark, simply beautiful. Phil demonstrates his stunning virtuosity as player, composer and accompanist throughout. Truly Hot Classic Swing Music with the added Velocity of a Modern Drive! Dave Brubeck, This Big Band Sounds Great! Patrick Williams, It is so gratifying to hear this great band.
