......Putting the BIG back in BAND

Big Band refers to a jazz group of ten or more musicians, featuring three to five trumpets, two to five trombones, four to five saxophones and the "rhythm section" which is a combination of piano, guitar, bass and drums. A Big Band may also include a "String Section" of violins and cellos. The most common combinations are known as 5/4/4/4 or 5/4/4/3 depending on the structure, often determined by the "Musical Arrangements" that the Big Bands perform.

 

The Big Band music genre continues to survive the years, particularly in television advertising and films. There are numerous professional Big Bands still touring the world today performing concerts, few though with their original band leaders, most are trading on the musical arrangements that the original band would have performed.

Factoid: "Big Bands were responsible for emotional imbalance and sexual excess" The New York Times 1941 !
