Joseph Lang of Jersey Jazz (April Edition) reviews Scott A Silbert Big Band, Jump Children. Lang says; “led by tenor saxophonist SCOTT SILBERT. Once a member of the acclaimed The Navy Commanders, he eventually becoming the chief arranger for the United States Navy Band. Those familiar with the service big bands are aware of the superior musicianship and intense swing present in their performances. Since retiring from the Navy in 2017, he has been active as a player and arranger with the Smithsonian Masterworks Jazz Orchestra as well as leading his own small groups and big band. His first recording with his big band reflects the essential swing that was mentioned above. For his 15-song program, Silbert transcribed some lesser heard tracks by a variety of Big Band Era aggregations and added an original piece, “Tootsie’s Rag,” for this joyous excursion by his 15-piece band. Among the bands represented are The International Sweethearts of Rhythm, Jimmie Lunceford, Larry Clinton, Duke Ellington, Louis Jordan, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey and Erskine Hawkins. If straight-ahead big band swing is your thing, you will love this music. “
