This double CD provides a fairly good overview of the cream of artie shaw's big-band recordings. Alongside benny goodman's big band, shaw's group of musicians were probably the most competent in the big-band era, ranking above glenn miller and the dorsey brothers' anodyne offerings. Duke Ellington and Count Basie however the artie shaw big band were not; this music, whilst eminently listenable, offers none of the complexity, sheer virtuosity or charm of the greatest swing recordings of all time - Ellington's Blanton-Webster band recordings (1940-42) along with the count basie decca and columbia recordings from the late 30s/early 40s. So if you seek competent big-band music that is easy on the ear whilst offering some depth, this would be worthwhile to have. If you're looking to be genuinely moved, get the great ellington/basie recordings first to listen to what great swing music sounded like before it was hijacked by a million mainstream big-bands.

A very good collection from the master of the clarinet. A mixture of big band swinging and small ensemble intimacy. The sound quality is great. A very good listen.

Excellent music by musician Artie Shaw, whom I first heard about on 'Desert Island discs'. An eclectic mixture of jazz and soul.
