"Mugsy Spanier's Ragtime Band has One recording that was famous and unquestionably 5 Star. Generally refered to as the "Sweet Sixteen" - which generally begins with "Relaxin' at the Touro", this compilation contains them all, and some others which may or may not be up to that high standard. This is pure, unadulterated Chicago jazz at its best circa 1939 - in fact, the "Sweet Sixteen" were all recorded in '39, and are the best example of incredibly tight, 'double-ending' (a Chicago trademark) high gear Swing, or Ragtime, if you prefer. These recordings are legendary, and Spanier's best. Highly Recommended if you like it hot!"
