JEFF BENEDICT BIG BIG BAND/Weather is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful: Kind of a tribute to the 70s when movies and TV were using a lot of big bands, the only real throwback here beside the vibe is Q’s “Hikky Burr” (see if you can remember what that’s from, I don’t even think they are showing the repeats any more). Other than that, it’s a well played program with enough swing and groove to keep you going for quite a while. Smoothly solid, this is a great date to kick back with when you want to put your feet up and let someone else expand the energy. Betcha no one in this gang was goofing off when they were taking music lessons back in the day.
