AVID Jazz continues with its Four Classic album plus series with a re-mastered 2CD Second Set release from The Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, complete with original artwork and liner notes.

Eddie Sauter met Bill Finegan in 1939 when both men were making a living as arrangers for the likes of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Red Norvo and Woody Herman who were in fact most of the classic Swing Era leaders of the day! They had both started their musical careers as musicians, Finegan, a pianist and Sauter, a trumpeter. They didn’t form the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra until 1952 and it lasted until 1957 with a short reunion in 1959. The costs of maintaining such a large band on the road had become prohibitive, and record sales were not keeping up with the bands ambitions. Maybe the anomaly of being ostensibly a swing orchestra after the age of swing didn’t help either! A 1952 Billboard article quoted the bands intentions as being “a creative band, which will combine dance music as well as mood interpretations”. Add to this, inventive arrangements and unusual instrumentation and you may begin to get near the unique sound of The Sauter-Finegan Orchestra. However to really discover their sound we suggest you purchase this set and settle down and prepare to listen to the unusual and unique albums of The Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, some of which are appearing here for the first time on CD!
