This was very good. Great quality.  If Pan Tribago's DVD is not as good as this, they better not release it.

Disciplined, nuanced, dexterous, cohesive, tight execution - all imprints indelibly embossed upon the Samaroo "Seal of Proficiency"

Class is Class.

This orchestra will surely bring an air of expectancy to an already competitive field when they debut in the Large-Band category next year.
