Album Notes and Credits
Recorded between 1930 and 1955. Includes liner notes by Loren Schoenberg.
AN ANTHOLOGY OF BIG BAND SWING contains 40 tracks on 2 CDs and includes a booklet with historical text and archival photos.
This two-CD set is an unusually successful sampler. Although there are a few hits among the 40 selections, many obscurities are also included, and not all of the big bands represented are major names, such as Tiny Bradshaw, Noble Sissle, Spud Murphy, Teddy Powell and Jan Savitt. The emphasis is very much on jazz, and this worthy reissue is overflowing with forgotten classics. The music is programmed in chronological order, so one can experience the evolution of big bands from Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson and Luis Russell to postwar recordings from Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman. ~ Scott Yanow
