It's a tribute to the great Batmusic of Nelson Riddle and Neal Hefti -- and we've got the whole rundown for you at 13th Dimension:

That sounds amazing! I wish they would have used it in the soundtrack for the last two animated movies.

Just ordered mine-- great stuff! Normally I'd just go digital download but that CD packaging is great!

This is wonderful! Great job from you and the band, Mwilbury! I know there are a lot of folks here (including myself) who wished they could have attended the concert when you originally posted about it so this is a great alternative.

I can't say enough great things about this album! One of the things I find so cool is that they picked the right Nelson Riddle Bat music cues and do fantastic riffs with them. It's a great Jazz record with A LOT of swing! So well executed! BAM!!! It has to climb the Jazz charts. Brilliant work.
