“Take the precision of the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis big band circa 1970, add the fat ensemble style of Stan Kenton and infuse it all with the high energy driving rock beat of Chase and the result is Scallywag, the new CD from the Melbourne-based big band led by Daryl McKenzie. Melbourne can be very proud of its complete dominance of the Australian big band scene. With this CD, Daryl McKenzie proves his orchestra belongs right up there with the best of them. ”
