Bill Allred's Classic Jazz Band
Red Hot Sessions

This is the fourth album by Bill Allred's Classic Jazz Band and the most ambitious of the first four. Performing many of the Matty Matlock and Billy Maxted arrangements are a specialty of this band, but arrangements by many other fine writers are featured here. Walt Stuart, Scott Whitfield, Joe DeWeese, and Mike Arena all have "custom" offerings, and the guys in the band lend a hand with some arrangements, too. Many of these musicians play more than one instrument, and Bill gives them a chance to shine. Additionally, the band is joined by guitarist Johnny Baier and bari saxophonist Tom Butler to recreate the authentic 10 piece sound of the Matty Matlock arrangements. Tasteful charts superbly played, this band has lots of fire and energy. Appropriately named, RED HOT SESSIONS is an exciting recording by a group of superb professionals.
