This is the Single LP version of this Chasing the Dragon double album extraordinaire! In creating this album, producer Mike Valentine wanted a group of exceptional musicians. Valentine felt so lucky to have to opportunity in working with the UK's leading big band, The Syd Lawrence Orchestra. His final requirement was to find a recording studio which not only had a superb sounding space, it also had to have an engineer versed in the black art of cutting live vinyl. Ultimately, he chose Air Studios with engineers Jake Jackson and John Webber.
The Syd Lawrence Orchestra led by Chris Dean performs music consisting of eight pieces from the big band era, the creations of Glen Miller, Artie Shaw, and Benny Goodman played live at Air Studios.
Well, what did their adventure reveal? Please judge for yourself, for Valentine hopes that you have as much fun in listening, as they had in creating this album. 180g 33RPM Audiophile Direct to Disc Single LP!
