Les and Larry Elgart led a very musical dance band in the 1950s, one of the few new big bands of the era. The emphasis was always on the melody rather than on jazz solos and this live CD of previously unreleased performances (recorded in stereo) is quite predictable. Their orchestra performs 14 standards with taste but no real originality, making these recordings of value strictly as background music for fox-trotters. ---Scott Yanow, AllMusic Review

 

Their sound is unique thanks to Charles Albertine their first chief arranger (a genius) Most noticible is the brass supported by the bass trombone (terrific) - no piano is used in this great big band. I heard that great band live in Montreal - in the fifties and sixties six of their singles releases were the openingn theme for different music broadcast. Theyb were very popular in Montreal - Les elgart band was booked for two weeks in a row at the Edge Water ballroom, he packed the house full every night - be sure I went 4 times to hear this fabulous band and Les Elgart was a Gentleman with the public. No mistake I bought back all their recordings on cd from different labels. I have `all their recording on cds. Hope this will be useful for fans of big band music. No mistake with the Elgarts. Best regards. ---A. Normandeau friom Longueuil, Québec, Canada, amazon.com
