Description:Toshiko Akiyoshi - Lew Tabackin Big Band was formed in Los Angeles in 1973. The rehearsal band of studio musicians had a clear concept: it would feature Akiyoshi as its sole composer/arranger and Tabackin as main soloist on tenor and flute. The band continued to record and tour until disbanded in 1982 when the two principals moved to New York. (They formed a new band called "Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra Featuring Lew Tabackin" which was active until 2003.)

With a flexible reed section each member of which was capable of switching instruments, the band had a distinctively colorful sound. With Akiyoshi's innovative compositions, Tabackin's superb solos and the band's tight execution, it was considered as one of the best big bands in the United States.

March of the Tadpoles features the whimsically and intricately written title tune. As usual, Lew Tabackin's tenor sax and flute are featured throughout. Tom Peterson, another tenor sax player who had been rather eclipsed by Tabackin in the past recordings, is given ample solo space in the closing number.

Produced by Hiroshi Isaka. Recorded in January 1977 at RCA Studio "A" in Hollywood. This reissue CD was remasterd with K2 24-bit technology and released in 2003.
