Yeah, I can highly recommend Gordon Goodwin`s Big Phat Band CDs. I`ve just got their latest album "Act Your Age" and love it. Great music and awesome drumming from Bernie!
Not just that, the sound and recording quality is great as well.

Tommy Igoe's band is all over youtube. And it's completely amazing. I have friends in NYC who go every week.

Since I last posted under this topic, Steve Fidyk has posted some big band videos on Youtube. There are some from a Buddy Rich tribute concert. There should be some clinic footage coming up too.

Here is the link to his videos.

I'm glad you liked it. I'll pass the good words on to Steve when I talk to him this weekend.
