What a glorious find!

Having sung with a 19 piece big band for many years, my love of standards and the big hitters of vocals has me always looking for new ways to enjoy the music. Gary's background information is great...just enough, letting the music speak for itself. I like the format of the show with a featured artist and things like which one does not belong! Thank you for the great variety of singers and bands and the great amount of work that goes into each show!
