The CD notes do not say but this KINGS OF SWING ORCHESTRA is led by Larry Elgart,The American dance band leader of the 1950s onwards.The K-TEL hooked on series such as Hooked on classics or Hooked on movies were hugely popular in the 1980s and Larry Elgart profiles say that this is the biggest selling swing album of all time on a worldwide basis.If that is the case perhaps it should belong in any sensible swing collection.
I like it,it is very easy to listen to over and over again as if there is the odd tune you are not keen on it quickly moves on to the next.It is divided into 8 medley sections such as Hooked on crooners medley ,Hooked on Shearing medley as well as swing.It bounces along in an upbeat way and like most Elgart stuff it is difficult not to tap your feet as it swings along.Highbrow jazz purists would probably wince but it is not meant for them anyway.
