A decade after the end of the Swing Era, the partnership of composer / arranger Neal Hefti and Count Basie and his Orchestra set the tone for what big band jazz would sound like for years to come, and virtually ensuring the ongoing popularity of big bands during a period of tumultuous shifts in musical styles and public taste.

This is why drummer and big band leader Frank Capp was long an admirer of Hefti’s writing and arranging, decided it was time to point his Juggernaut in the direction of a full-blown Hefti program. In A Hefti Bag, the band’s fifth Concord Jazz album is a lovingly crafted reminder of the timeless qualities that make the Hefti library so rewarding for both listeners and musicians.

This album was recorded in Hollywood, CA, on November 3, 1994; March 7 & 21, 1995.
