CD Reviews

Ever wanted to hear 1930's music in Hi-Fi?
B. Margolis | Minneapolis, MN United States | 12/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is about as close as you're gonna get. Quick background; 24 sides recorded on two 16" transcription discs by World Transcriptions under the phony name of BILL DODGE & HIS ORCHESTRA. They were solely recorded for use by radio stations.

Turns out that this studio group included Benny Goodman (clarinet), Bunny Berigan (trumpet), Arthur Schutt (piano and probable arranger), Dick McDonough (guitar), Gene Krupa (drums), Art Rollini (tenor sax) and Red McKenzie (vocals). These musicians are confirmed by years of research.

Many of the sides are similar to those recorded by Benny Goodman for Columbia.

Musically, these are amazingly well arranged. Sonically, the sound is MUCH better than most of the 78 transfers.

If you love Depression Jazz, this set is for you."
