"Buy this disc with the 1940-1950 disc on the same label and you'll have a great overview of this rockin' big band. This disc focus is on the early years of Hawkins big band. His band rocked as hard as anyone's, with musicians like Julian Dash on Tenor and Avery Parrish on piano leading the way. Though the band never acheived the stardom of the Goodman or Miller bands, these songs will show why the Erskine Hawkins band deserves a place as one of the best swing bands. Highly recommended."
