Some Reviews on Lou's new album.

CD Review:

LOU CAPUTO’S NO SO BIG BAND/Uh Oh!: He might be a Billyberg native but Caputo is no hipster trustafarian that talks the talk but never walks the walk. A regularly working unit, this crew is called a not so big band because it ‘only’ has ten pieces instead of 16 or more---and if that’s the only knock on this bunch…. Tried and true swingers, they can take you around the block with a bunch of stops in between, all of which are played to perfection throughout. Tasty stuff that comes from being powered by chops forged in the working musician’s crucible, this is a fine example of a party on a platter, jazzbo style. Check it out.

CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher

I'm glad he did the Don Elliott song "Uh Oh", one of my favorites. From the Nutty Squirrels to Billy May and now to Lou. Interesting I was just talking to Donn Trenner about that song. Lou has a great band and you did some nice liner notes for the CD.
