Review: World famous jazz clarinetist Ken Peplowski is joined by all-star jazz artists making a big band that really swings. He recorded everything live with the band. Ken liked the adrenaline rush of that style of recording. Great musicians here who respond well under the pressure of recording, but they all play with individual sounds and styles.
