Featuring some of Bob Florence’s last recorded performances, Sounds from the Road represents a magical period on the bus for Mike Vax’s Big Band and Alumni of the Stan Kenton Orchestra…

“Big bands are dead. Really? To counter that argument, I would present as ‘Exhibit A’ the Mike Vax Big Band’s persuasive ‘Sounds from the Road.’ And with that I rest my case.” -Jack Bowers, allaboutjazz.com

‘All of the essentials of the Kenton sound are here… this band is carrying on (Kenton’s) legacy and one hopes he is somewhere smiling. All of the excitement that earmarked the original Kenton orchestra has been captured for a new generation.’ -allaboutjazz.com
