Joe Harnell And His Orchestra
KAPP Records MS-7518
Here is Harnell's follow-up to his outstanding KAPP album titled Naked City.
This is an outstanding big band, jazzy space age LP. The engineering is excellent.
From the back cover: As a jazz artist, Joe has appeared with his own groups at such well known Manhattan night spots as The Waldorf and The Embers, while his classical background has encompassed studies with Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Ernst Toch and Darius Milhaud, as well as a year at the Trinity College of Music in London.
Midnight Madness is a Harnell composition.
