About the album

The Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Big Band visited Scandinavia a couple of times and was a sensation. Later when Mel Lewis and Thad Jones had some difficulties Thad got an offer from the Danish Radio Big Band where his first season was (1977-78). Thad Jones wanted to play his own music and played as many as ten radio broadcasts per year at the Montmartre Club. At the same time he also started up his own big band, Eclipse, with his own repertoire, based at Jazzhus Slukefter in the Tivoli Garden. On this double CD you can hear both orchestras. There are many American musicians in the bands: Idrees Sulieman (tp) and Richard Boone (tb & vo) Tim Hagans (tp) Horace Parlan (p) Ed Thigpen (dr) Sahib Shihab (saxes) Emmanuel Rahim (congas) all living in Copenhagen at the time.
