One of the best lesser-known bands
C. Craig | Havant, England, UK | 12/05/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Teddy Powell Orchestra was an amazing outfit - it played middle-of-the-road swing, but with terrific drive and panache.
George T. Simon when writing his band reviews in the 1940s often raved about the Powell band's performances. These recordings are pretty typical of its repertoire, verging from killer-diller numbers to Tin-Pan alley vocals of the period. Powell managed to always keep on the side of good taste, and in some cases, produced recordings of the highest musical quality. Just listen to "Tapestry in Blue"....."
