The Hot Metal Swing Orchestra is a new big band put together specially for Lindy Hoppers, focusing on music from the “Big 4 Big Bands:” Basie, Ellington, Shaw and Goodman, with some other greats as well. Paul Cosentino (of Boilermaker Jazz Band fame) leads the way on Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw transcriptions in his unique style. Trombonist Jeff Bush—alumnus of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and Harry Connick Big Band—is musical co-director and slide soloist. Jennifer McNulty contributes wonderful vocals made famous by Helen Forrest and other great singers. This incredible big band will keep you jumpin' all night long!
