Need to see more small bands

Hi all,

I've been playing pan in Toronto, ON, Canada for 10 years now. I'll be honest: i don't like big bands for the most part. The arrangements seem like complexity for complexity's sake. Don't get me wrong, I like when they play good music, but I find that the competition of it all compromises the music.

Look, I love hearing big bands live when they have a melody that has a direction to it. I respect the heritage behind the big bands.
