The Not So Big Band is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Lou Caputo. It is an attempt to join the spontaneity of free-blown small group jazz with the power and gravity of a big band. It consists of 12 musicians as opposed to the 16-piece or larger variety. This band is a working group and has been together for more than 15 years. Our varied musical library attempts to cover a wide range of styles that still fall into the category of modern jazz. The band has three albums out (Urban Still Life, Not So Big Band, and Uh Oh!) that have enjoyed a good deal of airplay and have been very well received. Uh Oh! placed in the top 40 of jazz radio playlist and was chosen as the album of the week by Memphis radio station WMUR.
