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: Flight Of The Bumblebee

Read "Flight Of The Bumblebee" reviewed by Paul J. Youngman


Big band leader, composer, arranger and trombonist Mike Barone notes, on the jacket of Flight Of The Bumblebee, that “Rimsky-Korsakov is turning over in his grave as we speak, or maybe he isn't." One thing is for sure, the energy level of this band is enough to raise the dead. The band is flying high on ...

Mike Barone Big Band: Flight of the Bumblebee

Read "Flight of the Bumblebee" reviewed by Robert J. Robbins


For a quarter-century, Mike Barone provided arrangements for Doc Severinsen's NBC-TV <em>Tonight Show</em> Band, but these were seldom heard by anyone except the studio audiences for the actual telecasts (although excerpts were audible to viewers as intros and exits from commercial breaks). Since the band's dissolution more than fifteen years ago, however, Barone has been recording ...

Mike Barone Big Band: By Request

Read "By Request" reviewed by Jack Bowers


As there is scarcely a clue anywhere on By Request as to who may have asked for these songs, it's fun to presume (whether true or not) that the album's title denotes bandleader Mike Barone's tongue-in-cheek response to those bemused inebriates who, legend has it, sometimes stagger up to bandstands shouting, “Play 'Melancholy Baby'! Indeed, “My ...

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 ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
