ABSOBLOODYLUTELYBRILLIANT!!!!  Much much superior to the absolute garbage put out over the loud speaker at some other supermarkets.  At our local Morrisons it is one load of rubbish after another, even many of the staff don't like it.  I get out of there as quickly as I can.  At Aldi they don't play anything, neither do they at Sainsbury's.

Lionel Hampton is very high on  my list. He was a far better musician than Mahler was a composer.
He was in Benny Goodman's outfit for a period and he had a group of his own.I have a couple of CDs.

Well I will admit that he was not there in the flesh. He (and his band) were all safely held together by an 11cm flat disc of black plastic and tucked into a special  place on the dashboard. These Mercs have everything!!!

I love big bands too.  I have very wide music tastes.  I just cannot stand this jabber jabber stuff where you cannot understand a word that they are chanting, is it rap or garage or whatever they call it.  I also hate these modern groups both male and female, who make weird vocal noises while strumming a guitar with three or four chords, while writhing and jumping up and down. I will ignore the silly remarks about Mahler's ability as a composer, some people do not have the mental capacity to understand complex and well written music.  I am fortunate in that I can understand and enjoy a wide variety of well written and performed music.  including the popular music of a few years ago, by people like Sinatra,the carpenters, Nat king Cole etc etc, classical, opera, big band, traditional jazz, modern jazz,brass band  etc.
