and for years afterwards, people kept asking,
"Will the big bands ever come back?"
The big bands are back
in a new and exciting way!

Big Band Library is a website dedicated to and focused on the legendary big band leaders who made timeless music that continues to appeal to many people, including myself.
I am solely responsible for the creation and content of this website, and strive to write clearly, with accuracy, and cite my sources. There is much good information here. Copyright and all rights reserved.
While I could be flattered that certain others have copied or quoted from my work, though typically without a proper - or any - acknowledgement to me, I ask that what I have authored or compiled here not be reproduced, replicated, circulated, or printed, whether in a book, newsletter, or magazine, on another website or blog, in a discussion group, or over a broadcast or webcast outlet for any reason. I would prefer that everyone can view my website for themselves.
Apart from the facts presented, occasionally I offer my own opinion about things, including, but not limited to, CD and book reviews. While some may disagree with my opinion, I have every right to give it.
There is nothing commercial about this website. Items listed are not for sale here, and (sorry) I don't have the time to track down where people can buy those things. If you've made it this far, you have the basic ability needed to look for things on your own by using an Internet search engine.

I hope that you enjoy visiting Big Band Library.
