I don't think I'll take the chance to post any of this superb tv special, but encourage you to search it out and buy. Ray Anthony and his allstar band Story of the Big Band Era is a wonderful DVD in b&w with guest stars including Charlie Barnett, Herb Jeffries, Jerry Gray, Ann Richards, Les Brown and Vicki Carr. The orchestra includes Frank Rossolino and Abe Most. Ray does his usual smooth mc work and the band is simply superb. Audio quality and video is excellent . I found this on Amazon for under $10. If you love the big bands it should be in your collection.
I'll be posting another magazine, probably a Downbeat soon. Watch for it.
