• Les BROWN & His Band of Renown - Live at the Hollywood Palladium

The band business has undergone many vital changes in the past. Of the few orchestras that have lived through all the vicissitudes of those years, some have made radical adjustments in style to cope with the new demands of a younger generation; others, through failing to recognise these demands, have waned in popular appeal. Still others have suffered inevitable and damaging changes in personnel. Through the entire era, Les Brown alone has continued to move along smoothly in a straight line. His changes in style and personnel never have been minor; his popularity has persisted unflaggingly. Yet he has never had the allegiance of the type of fan cult that has elevated the Goodmans, the Kentons and Hermans, to prize-winning pinnacles. This CD, presenting "Les Brown at the Hollywood Palladium", should do much to rectify the situation. These Les Brown recording shows the band at the top of it's form and should be an eye-opener for anyone who thinks the band was just an appendage to Doris Day.
