This record should not really be in the jazz section, Henry Hallís Orchestra was not a jazz outfit and I must admit to being surprised, to find a group of very talented young Estonian Musicians playing the Henry Hall Orchestrations. What I can report is that they play them very well and the rhythm section is a great improvement on the original. Whether that is because the recording techniques are so much better these days or the drum kits of today have a better sound, or perhaps they are just better players.

To the people who like the Henry Hall style of music, this is a welcome recreation of a very famous orchestraís work.
