Liner notes:

One of the UK's most effortlessly fluent big bands" - Jazz Alert

Celebrating 20 years in 2022, Strictly Smokin' Big Band prides itself on versitility; originally rooted in swing, SSBB has evolved into an ensemble also performing new, original and contemporary material. Its ranks boast the best jazz and commercial musicians the North has to offer.

This album spawned from the band's numerous guest artist performances across Newcastle-upon-Tyne with an array of the UK's top musicians. Huge thanks to them all. There is mention throughout the album booklet about their significance on the UK music scene but frankly these guys are some of the best in the world! Every interation, rehearsal, gig and recording has been a genuine pleasure. Thank you to everyone involved.
