Well I thought my memory for bid band and swing music was pretty good but after listening to the numbers featured on this CD I woke up to what I had missed out on until now. The digital enhancement of these tracks is out of this world in my opinion.It is a must for all people who either collect or perhaps play in a big band because everything there is as it should be remembered in a class of its own!

5.0 out of 5 stars don't forget jazz 6 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Youngsters today don't really know about jazz. R&B sprang from jazz in the 1950s. Both music forms continued but jazz faded away since about 1990.
Many artists are making a fortune e.g. Michael Buble from recycling past classics.
Get these instead, the superior originals!

I led a sheltered early life with Mr Anderson. On returning to the surface I was greeted by the Duke,and The Count, and the King ,and various other minor royalties.This had the effect. in later life, of my wishing to renew my aquaintance with these eminent gentlemen. A desire satisfied by purchasing this compilation that gives excellent coverage of the era.My Jiving has improved immesurably, indeed an excellent purchase!
