The 746th FEAF Band was a US Army Air Force Band that participated in the Philippine Campaign of World War II. From Leyte to Luzon, they played music for service members, civilians, generals, and dignitaries. At times, right on the front line. In 1945, they recorded the only known album by a frontline band unit, created in their tent, outside of Manila.
75 years later, this "band" of brothers' album has been modernized by some of the most talented sound engineers in the business: Grammy winner, Reuben Cohen of Lurssen Mastering and the talents of Hiroyuki Sanada, whose work includes the Grammy nominated Best Contemporary Jazz Album, "People People Music Music" by Groove Collective.
This album/project has multiple goals, but the most important is to celebrate World War II veterans in a modern, unique way.
