Not yet rated | write a review
As the man who made rockabilly popular with the big-haired, synth-soaked '80s New Wave crowd, and then helped pioneer a big-band swing revival in the grunge-ridden '90s, Brian Setzer is the Miracle Man of American music. This makes it possible to understand how he can pull off rockin', jump-blues-tinged, big-band versions of famous themes by venerated classical composers on WOLFGANG'S BIG NIGHT OUT. In yet another unprecedented move, Setzer and his orchestra lend big brassy horn riffs, swinging grooves, and of course plenty of death-defying jazz/blues guitar licks to the works of Mozart, Beethoven, et al. Neither classical music nor swing are ever likely to be the same again, and that probably suits Setzer just fine.
