Pasadena Roof Orchestra

50 years is quite a number in today´s music business! The Pasadena Roof Orchestra will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019 and to get you in the mood, we are happy to announce the release of a beautifully designed 3 CD Box Set with some the orchestra´s finest recordings: “Ladies and Gentlemen”, as well as two of their classic recordings from the 1970´s, “On Tour” and “The Show Must Go On”.

A lot has happened since in 1969 Mr. John Arthy, bandleader at the time, had discovered a bunch of dusty, but precious original arrangements on a widows attic. The orchestra has played hundreds of concerts all over the world and was even asked to play for the Queen of England herself. In Germany we may not have any Queens or Kings, but there is no doubt that the crown of swing belongs to this formidable orchestra.

You now may take a listen to some of the musical pearls contained in this jubilee collection, for it will be released tomorrow, November 2nd.
