SCOTT SILBERT BIG BAND/Jump Children: There’s been a slew of records lately by former members of armed forces bands and this is just the latest. The swinging sax man shows his affinity for the 40s and adjacent eras with this set of tunes that cover that waterfront nicely. Reminiscent of your first taste of swing coming at you via 80 year old WB and MGM cartoons, Silbert evokes an era that makes you wonder what has Chris Thomas wrought? Not just for oldies and nostalgia fans, this is an accomplished set that really kicks ass.
