"Hard to believe that I am the first reviewer of this now 11-year-old CD, but with 81 other discs featuring Roy, I suppose this compilation got lost in the shuffle. It is available used on this site for only a few bucks, so anyone who likes Roy, or big band horns from that era, ought to consider buying this. Here you get an hour's worth of entertainment, with varied tempos but mostly cheerful offerings. My first exposure to Mr. Eldridge came on the "Let Me Off Uptown" CD, which highlights some of Anita O'Day's singing with the Gene Krupa Orchestra of the early '40's. Roy was a featured player/soloist in that group. That CD is superb, but this one is also quite good."
