I love anything by Nestico, and this album will be no exception...and the SWR big band is always great. Sammy's Satin 'n Glass is a gas!
By the way, Blue Samuel is also based on the chord changes to Frank Roslino's Blue Daniel.

That's Rosolino, not Roslino in my previous post.


Good to hear Sammy is doing well and still working! I'll have to check out the CD.

What instrument did you play in school Marc?

Any band stories to tell? (Could be the subject of a future blog!).
