    The big band I play with still closes a lot of our park and library concerts with the version of MacArthur Park originally recorded by Maynard and it is always a big hit with the audience , and it is often requested for before we start our show.

    Well, since I can't get this wacky song out of my head now this morning I might as well share the pain and direct you to one of it's excellent parodies by my hero "Weird Al" Yankovic:

    Yes!!
    1)The Tonight Show Band with Doc Severensen (Discs I and II)
    2)Live from Beautiful Downtown Burbank: Tommy Newsom and the Tonight Show Band (album only)
    These CD's will curl your hair they are so good. To my knowledge, all the cuts are first takes. The song Sax Alley is great! Two monster tenor sax players lock horns in a cutting session that got so fevered that even the band said "WOW" at the end of the song.
    If you can find it and know someone that can transfer albums to CD, The Tommy Newsom album has a song called Chimes that is just a knock out.
    You can get the Tonight Show CD's cheap on Amazon in the "used" section.
    Everyone has an opinon about what is the best Big Band. I don't think such a creature exists since there are many throughout history ranging from Fletcher Henderson to The Phat band.
    The Tonight Show Band (the real one with Johnny Carson) is among those greats.
