Album Description  
Trumper, composer and arranger, Steve Huffsteter has assembled and rehearsed his dream big band for years in Los Angeles. On an afternoon in the spring of 2003, AIX Records captured this terrific ensemble the way big band music should be recorded... live straight to the high-resolution digital master. Over the next few months, AIX edited the video and mixed the tracks for this very special release... finally a big band recorded with the "big sound" of high-resolution digital audio!
Reviews/Comments  
Dave Tull, a friend from our days at CSU Northridge and contributor to the Paul Smith project, turned me on to Steve Huffsteter and his Big Band. And what a band it is! Thoughtful and innovative charts combined with outstanding musicianship and solos make this a new leap for AIX Records. I've been asked to apply our recording methodology to a band of this scope and am very glad that we finally were able to pull it off. Wes Dooley of Audio Engineering Associates provided 6 beautiful RCA type ribbon mics for this occaision and it makes all the difference on the saxes and especially the brass. Once again we employed lots of stereo pairs on the ensemble placed in a circle on the stage...you'll be amazed at the musical involvement and dynamic range.
