In the early days of jazz, "Orchestra" was used to identify bands larger than a septet. Nowadays, jazz orchestras and big bands are much larger than that, like those we feature in our final installment of our mini-series dedicated to (mostly new and upcoming) releases by big bands and orchestras which can be found at the intersection of beauty, fun and mischief.
Happy listening and don't forget to check out the previous installments of this mini-series: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
