"At times the playing is quite stupendous."
- Dave Gelly, the Guardian
Guys & Dolls, the debut album by the Ed Puddick Big Band, is a bold reworking of 13 pieces taken from the well-loved Frank Loesser musical of the same name. Released in 2010 on Diving Duck Recordings to considerable critical acclaim, it spotlights regular players from Ed's 15-piece band in sophisticated, diverse and surprising arrangements.
