Swing Hi Swing Fi - George Siravo

Some Of These Days
Swing Hi Swing Fi
George Siravo And His Orchestra
Vik LX-1125

Big band flavored with a little of that "light pop" sound that I hear in many early 60s Command label projects.

From the back cover: He (Siravo) knew where he was going at all times so he was able to accept the ideas formulated by others, let them sit and soak for a while and later bring them forth in a pattern that was individualistic and fresh. For source material, Siravo had the best the band business had to offer at the time. He played with bands led by Glenn Miller, Jan Savitt and Artie Shaw and he wrote arrangements for Charlie Barnet, Gene Krupa, Benny Goodman and the late greats Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey.
