1. Board Meeting
"I grew up in the swing era and played this music the first time around. The sound of this band is remarkably authentic. Frank has captured the excitement and energy of a great era, with superb musicians and arrangements true to the day...with a classy touch of Benny Goodman thrown in . It's a kick being a part of it."
