The Brian Setzer Orchestra

Released March 22, 1994

The debut album of the Brian Setzer Orchestra took many fans by surprise. It’s not often that big bands were formed in popular music in the 20th century, outside of the jazz world. Brian Setzer was the perfect man to do it. Setzer took the retro sound that he had great success with the Stray Cats to an entirely new level with a big band of musicians that could swing and rock hard at the same time.  The album was filled with a mix of original songs by Bruan Setzer as well as traditional rocking classics.
