Live in 1940-1941

Live in 1940-1941

by Will Bradley & His Orchestra



Live in 1940-1941 collects two fine performances by the big band Will Bradley, formed with drummer/vocalist Ray McKinley. Bradley sounds wonderful leading the group through swinging numbers like "In a Little Spanish Town" and "This Little Icky Went to Town," and he really shines on "Fatal Fascination," a ballad he co-wrote with pianist Freddie Slack, which serves as the band's intro and outro to both sets. Slack's arrangements, filled with richness and class often lost in modern music, and McKinley's fluid drumming solidify Live in 1940-1941 as a magnificent document of a highly skilled band who unfortunately did not last long due to Bradley's reluctance in the spotlight.
