Grammy-nominated composer, arranger, drummer and band leader Tim Davies formed his first big band in 1998 in Melbourne, Australia. Its run was cut short by Tim's move to Los Angeles, but since 2000, Davies has released two recordings with his topflight LA band of seasoned session and touring players. For The Expensive Train Set, Davies comes full circle as he resurrects the Melbourne group and features both bands on four tunes each, with one new composition written for the two bands performing together. Davies creates arrangements grounded in the traditional, while adding elements from many influences to create a sound that is wide-ranging and cinematic - a sure consequence of his award-winning career as a major orchestrator for film, TV and events. •"...genre-defying arrangements and quality performances...a worthy addition to any serious jazz or classical record collection." - International Trumpet Guild
