La big band | Live in studio

The Saint Louis Big Band conducted by Antonio Solimene is an orchestral formation that fully respects the classical big band structure viz:

5 Sax, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, Rhythm (piano, guitar, bass and drums), 1 voice.

  • The ensemble’s jazz-like repertoire touches on much of the expressions and changes that have characterized African-American music since the turn of the last century,
  • BB proposes some of the finest pages of orchestral jazz literature, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie.

The elaborations of contemporary arrangers from the American area, Sammy Nestico, Don Sebesky and Bob Mintzer, are favored.

After about a year, the first CD by the Saint Louis Big Band of the Saint Louis College of Music entitled Live in the Studio has finally arrived.

11 tracks that try to photograph the stylistic characteristics but of the repertoire, from swing to Latin through funky.

The main goal was to communicate the energy that comes out during the live performances of this lineup, but it was no accident that the decision was made to record live.
