Recording big bands and strings

Thanks so much for taking the time to do this!

Would you share your approach to a big band session? How do you set up the players? How do you approach mic'ing them - do you rely on individual mic's? section mic's? overall mic's? Do you tend to put any particular instruments in an iso booth?

And in a similar vein: how do you approach recording strings for those big, lush pop arrangements?

What are some of your favourite or go-to techniques for getting "that sound"?
