The Big 18

Clare plays tracks from the Big 18 studio band, formed in the late Fifties to re-create (in stereo, hi-fi) the sound of the big bands from the 1930s and '40s. Interspersed with those will be tracks from the bands which formed the inspiration for the project such as Benny Goodman, Ambrose and Charlie Barnet.
