Direct Metal Master 180g Vinyl Double LP!

The BBB Featuring Bernie Dresel Live N' Bernin' is released by Monster Music® as two-disc gatefold analog 180-gram vinyl stereo LP.

The LP release was mastered from the original stereo mix of the 34-track 96-kHz/24-bit Linear PCM live master recording. The LP was manufactured and pressed by Europe-based Mediadub in Germany for top-notch quality. The mastering engineer, Tom Van Achte, personally oversaw every stage of the LP production, including the pre-mastering and mastering process to create the DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) metal stampers. Tom also certified the audiophile quality that was demanded by listening to and approving the test pressing before quantity duplication proceeded.

The live performance took place on April 20, 2016 in Burbank, California at Joe's Great American Bar & Grill, an intimate audience venue The BBB often performs in and whose acoustics are well suited to the project. The BBB performed two one-hour sets of jazz charts, with an initial 30 minutes securing sound checks. The emcee for the evening was Bubba Jackson, renowned KJAZZ 88.1 FM radio personality.

Bernie Dresel's jazz orchestra, The BBB, is without question one of Los Angeles' most exciting large jazz ensembles, if not on the planet. It is one of the most innovative and original hard-swinging large jazz ensembles ever. The BBB provides potent testimony to the sheer exhilaration of big band jazz...a combination of intense swing and fiery soloing, as well as tight ensemble playing, powered by Bernie Dresel's extraordinary drumming talents.

The BBB is comprised of 16 seasoned pros on the Los Angeles studio scene. Populated by LA's finest players, The BBB delivers a contemporary, highly original sound featuring the witty, intricate, and hard-swinging compositions of established and up-and-coming composers and arrangers. And like those other famous jazz orchestras such as Buddy Rich's, Count Basie's, Woody Herman's, Stan Kenton's, Maynard Ferguson's, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis' and Gerald Wilson's, the music and delivery of The BBB's music is nothing less than astonishing when experienced live. The sound has a contemporary, dynamic, and hard-swinging energy, with a focused edge to it that is like no other jazz orchestra, though, reminiscent of Buddy Rich's ensembles. The instrumental makeup is unique in that there is no piano but jazz/rockin' electric guitar instead, in addition to four trumpets, four trombones, five saxophones, and upright acoustic slap bass and drums. When people hear Bernie's BBB, the first thing that hits them is its energy and intensity.

At the helm of The BBB is jazz drummer extraordinaire Bernie Dresel. Bernie is the first-call drummer and percussionist on the Hollywood stage for motion picture and television soundtracks. Count Basie, Maynard Ferguson, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington, Buddy Rich, Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Tower Of Power, among many other established and new jazz orchestra composers and arrangers, fill the book for the music his band makes today. And like those other bands, Dresel's rendering style is nothing less than exciting, driven by one of the most accomplished jazz drummers in the world.

Prior to forming his own jazz orchestra, Bernie backed Maynard Ferguson, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, and Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. Bernie served 15 years for both Setzer and Goodwin. He has been the drummer on numerous Brian Setzer Grammy Award®-winning recordings and more recently on every recording that Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band has released, including the Grammy Award winners.

Bernie's credits with respect to motion picture and television soundtracks represent "A" movie projects and such television work as The Simpsons and Family Guy.
