Description:Swing Journal Gold Disc!

Manhattan Jazz Orchestra was created by pianist/arranger David Matthews and an accomplished Japanese producer Shigeyuki Kawashima (both GRAMMY winners) in 1989. It is one of the premier and most prolific big bands in the US, having released 14 CDs over the last 20 years.

Their 15th release, Sing Sing Sing 2010 - Tribute To Benny Goodman is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great clarinetist and band leader, and without a doubt their best album yet! The daring, creative and intricate arrangements of Matthews are awe-inspiring, and the execution of his score by the top-notch New York musicians is impeccable and vibrant.

From the impressive "Sing Sing Sing (2010 Version)" that builds in intensity from a deliberately moderate tempo to a rare big band arrangement of the lovely "Memories Of You," Matthews' arrangements are brilliant throughout: They are technically sophisticated, fearlessly creative and intricate, employing multi-layered harmonies and the unique voicing of the band (only four woodwind players who switch instruments all the time with a French horn and tuba) to full effect. Star players such as Lew Soloff, Chris Hunter and Andy Snitzer add fire to the proceedings with their inspired solos.

The quality of the recorded sound is especially good on this CD. The soundstage is so big that one gets an impression of being faced with a huge "wall of sound." And excellent separation of sections and individual instruments lets the listener fully appreciate the intricate arrangements. Enthusiastically recommended to fans of big band music and audiophiles!

Produced by Shigeyuki Kawashima. Recorded at Sear Sound Studio, New York, on December 13 & 14, 2009.
