The word of the day for this music fan is WOW. At present I am listening to the debut album from the Fogcutters Big Band. Its a live recording of a star-studded show at the State Theatre that I still regret not being at last December. I mean geez, louise, take a look at the show poster and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Put a big gold star on your calendar (or set your iPhone accordingly) because the CD release show for "Big Band Syndrome Vol 1" is June 23rd at The Big Easy.

Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
