Jazz (8): Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band

The Knife spotted this brief review in the FT, and bought the CD. It’s grabbed loads of critical acclaim (1, 2, 3) for all the right reasons. The band has been described as what the hotshot studio musicians from Hollywood and American TV do on their days off, and it’s just great. As the Yanks wouldn’t say, they’re as  tight as a duck’s arse. Big band totally contemporary fun and funky jazz. (Phew)
