Woody Herman Reissue

I am very excited that Wounded Bird Records released Woody Herman's "My Kind Of Broadway" on compact disc this week. It is one of my favorite big band albums and I have been waiting since the invention of the compact disc player for it to be released on cd.

The vinyl recording was originally released in 1964 and features one of Woody's best bands. The legendary Bill Chase was in this incredible group. The arrangements of broadway classics from West Side Story, Bye Bye Birdie, My Fair Lady, The King & I, The Sound of Music and others are truly great.

I've sent in my order and will be anxiously checking my mailbox each day for the package to arrive. Way to go Wounded Bird Records!
