RTB BIG BAND was formed in 1948 and imidietly started gaining international reputation. In 1960 they won the 1st prize at Juan-Les Pins Jazz Festival.. Tonny Scott: Ive said it before and Ill say it again The Belgrade orchestra I heard there, cuts every band Ive ever heard in States except Basie. If you dont believe ask Quincy. Down Beat: Yugoslavia provided a musical surprise in the shape of Vojislav Simics big band in Belgrade based on the Kenton sound, but the compositions are better and the band sounds better. Gatefold carton sleeve with original artwork and insert in English. This is definitely one of not so many pearls of Yugoslavian jazz . In 1978 RTB Big Band celebrated the 30th anniversary by releasing this double album consisted of recent works recorded from March 73 - February 77. The title wasn't as imaginative as the music itself and it was just called 1948-1978 that was a bit misleading for the contest of the album. It had a small inscription at the back of the cover saying "With Guests" so also it might be known under this name as well. Guests in this case on some of the recordings were Dusko Gojkovic, Alan Skidmore, Gerd Dudek, Bora Rokovic. The well known track "Balkan Express" made the original record sought after and quite expensive but very few had a chance to actually hear the whole album. Once they find the album and pay a pile of money for it they get pleasantly surprised. This double LP is much more then Balkan Express. It is fully packed with a top quality big band jazz fusion. Every track is a winner. Check it and try to chose which one's your favourite.
