This CD is a ”greatest hits” collection of recordings by Ole ”Fessor” Lindgreen’s Big City Band, made between 1973 and 1984.
This heavily blues- and rhythm & blues-oriented collection (15 tunes/72 min.) includes four original tunes by band members and a couple of soul numbers - ”Hi Heel Sneakers” and ”Why Am I Treated So Bad?” – along with the rest of the tasty repertoire.
The musicians are among Denmark’s finest jazz and blues musicians, including the virtuoso trumpet work of Finn Otto Hansen, the burning, soulful tenor sax of Steen Vig, the funky driving beat of drummer Thorkild Møller and the exuberant trombone-playing of Fessor, himself. There are also two famous guests on the CD: ”Mighty Flea” Connors on trombone, and three vocal tunes by the famous blues performer Champion Jack Dupree.
Although some of this music was recorded thirty years ago, the great musicianship and enthusiasm - plus the fine, blusey repertoire – make this timeless music that swings like crazy. The music on this CD will prove irresistible to blues, rhythm & blues and jazz fans.
