Edward deCorsia and New York’s Most Dangerous Big Band
Born of the love of Big Band jazz, producer and trombone player, Edward deCorsia, began searching for an ensemble of local musicians who would be as at home playing “In the Mood” as they would Latin Rocking a pop tune by Santana. He set out to find and network with all of the best reading musicians he could collect for this musical undertaking. During the search, he called upon musicians and friends who had played together as far back as 1974 for a road band that performed at Expo (The World’s Fair) in Montreal, Canada. Some of the original players were as young as 16, some were in their seventies!
