Mike Barone Big Band: La Fiesta

Read "La Fiesta" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Mike Barone has been writing outstanding big-band arrangements for more than half a century. After listening to La Fiesta, Barone's ninth album as leader of the Los Angeles-based Mike Barone Big Band (counting Live at Donte's, recorded back in 1968), the logical question arises: does Barone ever run short of resourceful ideas? To which the obvious ...

Mike Barone Big Band: Metropole

Read "Metropole" reviewed by Jack Bowers

In 1968, composer/arranger/trombonist Mike Barone recorded a hair-raising big-band album, Live at Donte's, then paused for 37 years before producing its spectacular sequel, Live 2005! Now, hard on the heels of that admirable endeavor, comes another masterwork from Barone, Metropole, recorded live last March at LA Valley College in Valley Glen, California. To be fair, Barone ...
