When Joe Sullivan thinks about the band and this project, a few random thoughts and images come to his mind: ...finally, there’s nothing in the world quite like a Big Band. He loves it all...the rehearsals, the new charts, the old jokes, the good gigs and even the bad. And every band has it’s own unique character, which, he guess, comes from some combination of the book, the players and the guy standing out in front. This band plays the heck out of his music and he all have loads of fun doing it. For that he is most grateful...
