Of course, the musicians have to commit to the solos that they play live...
Amen to that, Dave. Great way to record a big band:

- 1. Walk into a great sounding room.
- 2. Throw up a couple of 44s in front of the horns.
- 3. Throw up a couple of 4011s in front of the kit.
- 4. Throw a C24 in the piano.
- 5. Foam wrap a KM84 and stuff in the bridge of the bass.
- 6. Push record.

Well, maybe not quite that easy, but you get the idea.
