“Snooky” Young always said we were the best big band in the land. Even though I don’t let his words go to my head, I love our band! Our band members always bring a collective high level to the music that can’t be touched. Combine this with Barbara and Ernie and you’ve got something special.
The L.A. Treasures Project was recorded live in the intimate setting at Alva’s Music in San Pedro California to an audience of avid fans and supporters. This historic project features the vocal talents of two of L.A.’s great treasures: Ernie Andrews, whose hard swinging, gospel rooted style is featured on Beautiful Friendship, The Jug and I and I’m Getting Sentimental Over You; and Barbara Morrison, who gives her elegant and playful treatments to Fever, Gotta Get Back to L.A. and Exactly Like You.
