I was originally put off by what I thought to be a "cheesy" cover; two grown men playing cowboys, but I decided to pick up the CD when I saw it on sale. I was very pleasantly surprised by this album.

I realise that most audiophiles interested in Jazz recommend the album(s)but there seem to be issues and reissues from the same label and from different labels. Some are quite reasonably priced whereas others are quite ... more

Again thanks for the recent suggestions-I hadn't thought of chesky recordings thinking they were mostly classical or something...I read the reviews of the Bucky Pizzarelli: Swing Live and I think I will definitely get it...the price from amazon uk from us sellers seems like a bargain. ... more
