The Flying Horse Big Band – “Good News” – Flying Horse Records

 

Flying Horse Big Band

 

With large, multi-colored letters the title of this works just jumps out at you. Upon further inspection I noticed, in the upper right corner, the band’s name and was instantly happy. I have reviewed their music twice before, once on July 21, 2017 and a second time on August 10, 2018. This being my third should indicate how much I enjoy the work from this very talented group. I am not convinced that calling them a big band is even accurate. With almost thirty musicians in total, “Flying Horse” could almost be considered an orchestra. Either way, that doesn’t matter. What matters is the music. For the most part, this group’s music is pretty high octane, upbeat and up tempo. With about twenty musicians comprising the Saxophone, Trumpet and Trombone sections alone, the opportunity for various movements to play off each other exists and occurs. I’m also not sure saying this is strictly “Big Band” music is accurate either. It is also traditional jazz and even swing. However it may be classified, however it may be categorized, know this – it is very good music.

Overall 8.5

Sonics: 8

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
