Boston Big Band After Dark
In 1994 the Boston Big Band recorded their first CD, "After Dark," for Seaside Recordings, featuring guest artist Phil Wilson. Two years later a follow-up CD, "Everything Happens to Me" was released, gaining much critical acclaim from jazz critics around the country. Well known jazz arrangers Dick Lieb (Tonight Show band), Greg Hopkins (Buddy Rich) and Phil Wilson have contributed to the band's library, and the sidemen and soloists are among Boston's most respected musicians. As Artie prepares to "swing" into the 21st century, he continues to be the bandleader of choice for music lovers in New England and beyond.
