Boyd Raeburn band is not as popular as Stan Kenton and Woody Herman.

Many years ago a wonderful album of Boyd Raeburn was on sale in Japan.

I have owned “The progressive Big Band.”

Please listen to the first tune included in this record first.

先週、Hogan Jazz Archiveの学芸員であるBruce Raeburn氏を紹介しました。

The film was held as part of “Sicilian Dream” where the Italian Cultural Center (Osaka) introduces films, music, food culture etc in the Sicily region.

The main character is Nick LaRocc of Sicilian II, and the film has become a jazz movie using the documentary method.

Many people are more familiar with this movie than me.
