    What a great album! Has anyone else heard this besides me? What floors me is that anyone could actually get all these people together and form
    a big band that actually toured for a short while. Here is a section of an interview with David Amram about the group. http://www.jazzwax.com/2007/11/david-amram-p-1.html

    The CD is avaliable on LoneHill Jazz. LH 10168. It even includes three live numbers from Birdland where Oscar introduces the tunes!

    NPR's Jazz Profiles also features Oscar Pettiford: Bass Beyond Bop here
    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=18490352
    it's avaliable as a podcast.
