Genres: Jazz, Pop, Broadway & Vocalists
The most overlooked version of Pop's "All Stars"
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This much Louis with Luis is all but impossible the find. The execellent JSP big band twofer roughly contemporary in time but an entirely different sound; JSP has compled the Guy Lombardo influenced orchestra Pops always refused to knock but which has always been down-rated in comparisons to the "Hot" bands and the All Stars of his later years.This band (which was actually a number of different groups off and on over time)just swings harder and with a better sound technically than anything the Hot 5s and 7s had done previously. It less about creative breakthroughs of the sort found on the earlier recordings, but more about Louis' complete confidence in his abilities and those of the group as entertainers.Fantastic."
