"Early swing by Coleman Hawkins and Henry Allen backed by members of the Fletcher Henderson band. These tunes were recorded shortly before the collapse of the Henderson band in 1934 and show Allen and Hawkins playing beautifully. A sort of "little big band" with between 8 and 10 men playing on each tune. And what musicians, many who would go on to become jazz legends: Dicky Wells, Hilton Jefferson,JC Higginbothom,John Kirby,Benny Morton, and others. If you like to tap your foot to some great swing music, this is for you."
