John Cooper

I'd like to add~
The Bill Elliott Swing Orchestra
LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM
December 1999

The BESO was one of the best of the "Swing Revival" bands of the late 1990s.....likely THE best. A legitimate 15 piece Swing orchestra with a vocal group *not* made up of the band's musicians.

Great charts, great players, not a ghost band. They were everywhere and we took them for granted at times. It was a thrill while it lasted.

Just listen to the 4 segments recorded live that night at a dance that drew close to 2000 people.
