I just ordered copies of "Devil's Serenade" and "20th Century Closet" by Mora's Modern. Has anyone heard these discs? I have one of the band's earlier release and it's really hot! Dean Mora is certainly keeping the spirit alive.

I've seen him live twice. Not the full orchestra, though. Still great. :D

Mora's Modern Rhythmists and Mora's Modern Swingtet are both fabulous! Though I have the luxury of seeing them live here in LA, I do have one CD and it is really great. Hope you enjoy the CD's!

Haven't heard either, but I do have 4 previous Mora discings. Based on those I'm sure the new ones will be outstanding.
My only knock at the band - and it's a small one unless you're a musician, as I am - is that the horns often do not vibrato in ensemble passages. That's a modern convention I'm not sure Dean & the gang are aware of.

Both discs arrived and they are terriffic. I can recommend "20th Century Closet" and "Devil's Seranade." Swing from the 20's to the 40's - nothing neater, nothing sweeter!

They're all great - I've got all the CD's he's released. In fact, that's what's loaded on my iPod for listening to in the car. That, and Black Jack Justice and Red Panda from Decoder Ring Theatre. ;)

You mean my favorite band?
These guys are hot and play out here in LA all the time.
