I have to say that this triple CD is an absolute belter for the princely sum of £2.99.
61 tracks and way over three hours of lovely big band excellence. OK, a lot of the tunes are very well known and somebody with a good collection of this genre will have most of them but if you are thinking of trying this type of music out for the first time you would be crazy not to buy this. This will get played over and over!!

This is very different to the normal music that I normally listen but I do like listening to this kind of music at concert so thought it would be nice to have a cd of this type of music. The price was excellent and in very good condition. Also an excellent buy if it is to ones taste.

An excellent introduction to the world of the Big Band Sound. Sound quality is variable as you would expect given the age of some of these recordings but great Jazz Swing sounds. At this price what's not to like?

I saw this on offer in the Daily Telegraph, then found it a lot cheaper on Amazon. Very much the musical era of my 90 year old mother, who us visiting. But I like it too. A great period for decent tunes.
