It's Not Big It's Large
Label: Curb Records
Although Austin's Lyle Lovett recorded with a big sized band, they didn't make "big band" music, so he named it the Large Band. Lovett's Large Band may sound jazzy on the surface, but listen close and you'll hear that they're actually using jazz instrumentation to enlarge blues and Americana rooted arrangements. Jerry Douglas, Bela Fleck, Jeff White and Guy Clark make some outstanding cameos.
