ER 2230 RUSINKO JAZZ ORCHESTRA – “Big Band Legacy”




The Rusinko Jazz Orchestra is made up of professional musicians, who are friends and colleagues of the late Emil Rusinko, who founded this ensemble 25 years ago. Many of the current players performed with Emil a good portion of that time. The group rehearses twice a month, and thoroughly enjoys the fellowship of the members, and the experience of performing the best big band arrangements available today. Among the arrangers are Kenneth Farrar, who wrote a majority of the charts in our repertoire, and our dear friend and mentor, the late Hank Levy, who also attended and conducted many of our rehearsals over the years. We lost both Hank and Emil in 2001, but we keep their spirit alive as we continue the “Big Band Legacy” they have left us. We, therefore, dedicate this CD to their memory and hope to continue performing and recording for many years to come.
