**About The 'SuperBand...."
Dennis Noday and I created this orchestra to do
something just a little different than what has gone before, and this
new 18-piece jazz orchestra in the Kenton tradition is generating
some real excitement from the local jazz community.
players are the absolute top-drawer jazz talent in the South Florida
area, but what's truly unique about this orchestra is our library of original arrangements,
written by myself over the course of the past fifty years.
are many original compositions, but there are also new arrangements of
some of the wonderful standards from the "Great American Songbook".
Unlike most other bands in
town, we play NO purchased commercially available big-band music.
Make no mistake: this is a New Orchestra, with a New Sound!
musicians love the book, and audience reaction to the
music at the Black Box was marvelous! Dennis has also
contributed some music from his amazing tenures with the Stan Kenton
Maynard Ferguson bands, and he still has a large following in the South
Florida jazz community, having led his own big-band down here for
This creates a nice 'balance' of the 'new' with the 'old'!
this wonderful orchestra and let's make some 'history'!
