Dramatic sweeping big band wonderment Henry Godfrey Orchestra – Love Finds Everyone

Dramatic sweeping big band wonderment Henry Godfrey Orchestra – LOVE FINDS EVERYONE:  Henry plays drums on this one, but his primary role is as the composer on his new release… he gives us a sound like we’ve never heard before, full of dramatic & sweeping big band wonderment.  Though I didn’t find LIVE videos, you can listen to the entire LP version now…

I strongly recommend that you SUBSCRIBE to Henry’s YouTube topic channel, too.

On the 5:25 “Shenandoah“, you’ll hear some glorious trombone work from Alan Hsiao, in one of the most unique performances of this classic tune you will ever listen to; I predict this tune will be getting a LOT of airplay from DJ’s of all types ’round the globe!

Many big band composers seem to try and pack every note from every instrument into just a few phrases that often approach pandemonium… what makes Henry’s compositions so unique is that he has an approach that could be described as “languid” (yet still jam-packed with energy)… that’s best demonstrated for me on a piece called “Witch s Eye“… lively, yet laid-back, if you will – an amazing performance that is my personal favorite of the six songs offered up.

I give Henry and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information about Henry and his band on his BandCamp page for the release.                                       Rotcod Zzaj
