Big Band Specials
Label: TP4 Music
By 1962 people were getting misty-eyed for the swing era. Christy was a part of Stan Kenton's big band but she avoids her past hits with him and recasts these swing chestnuts (all associated with different star bandleaders) as modernist romps with the help of Shorty Rogers, Bob Cooper and Bill Holman. Christy's searing take on "Goodbye" is flat-out amazing.
