- Thanks For The Memory
You've heard these songs before...Jersey Bounce, String Of Pearls, Frenesi, Undecided...all the other happy memories that brightened the Big Band era.
Peter Matz has heard them before too. Like so many of us, he grew up with that Big Band sound ringing in his ears. BUT...Peter Matz hears things differently from the rest of us.
He hears songs in his own original and highly imaginative fashion. He hears them with that difference that he puts into his famous arrangements for Barbra Streisand, the unusual arrangements that played such an important part in helping to establish her as a star.
Peter Matz thinks in terms of today and tomorrow even while he is remembering yesterday. He hears the great hits of the Big Band era alive and vital with the musical feeling of today, renewing in contemporary big band terms the excitement they had the first time around.
