Holy crap, this band is on fire! One of the best big bands still around today. I love all of their stuff; The Phat Pack has become one of my all-time favourite albums, and they have a countless number of songs that I could listen to over and over again. Just a few of them include Count Bubba, (and his Revenge), Huntin' Wabbits (and the sequel, Bad Hare Day), Bach 2 Part Invention in D Minor, & La Almeja Pequena (The Little Clam) (which has my all-time favourite recorded trumpet solo). Their newest album, Act Your Age, is absolutely killer; my favourite song on that album has to be Backrow Politics, but the whole thing is fantastic.
Not only is Goodwin's music fun to listen to, his charts are great to play. We're playing a slightly easier version of Count Bubba in my college's jazz band this semester. I've also heard from lots of people that his other charts are equally as awesome.
What do you guys think of the Big Phat Band? Like 'em? Ever play their music?
