This ensemble played youth-oriented music with elements of jump blues and swing. 'The Brian Setzer Orchestra' released nine studio albums, seven compilation records and three live DVDs. Hits include 'Jump, Jive an' Wail' and covers of Beethoven's 'Fur Elise' and 'Symphony No. 5'. These songs were featured on the album Wolfgang's Big Night Out, which received a Grammy nomination for 'Best Classical Crossover Album'.
