A SUBTLE SWING
Barry McCanna | Normandy, France | 01/28/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was issued in 1990 by Columbia Legacy in their Best Of Big Bands series, and spans mid-1936 to early 1939. Eleven of the eighteen tracks are instrumentals and show what an excellent orchestra this was. The reason was not simply the excellence of Eddie Sauter's arrangements but also, as the late Dick Sudhalter points out in the liner note, that the emphasis was on playing with restraint. That's not to say that the result is not exciting, rather that it is what the audience labelled "subtle swing". That was suited perfectly to Mildred Bailey's voice, which she deployed with sensitivity. As a bonus, two previously unissued titles (I Kiss Your Hand, Madame and A-Tisket, A-Tasket are included), and their presence compensates for what today is regarded as short measure."
