Great Introduction and Great Toe-Tapping Listening

"Someone who knows the era better than I will have to tell how well-chosen the tracks are, but I've really enjoyed listening to this. The recording quality is indeed low but you need to regard that as akin to the tool marks in fine leather; they are proof of its authenticity. What do you expect for a track recorded in 1927? It's not going to be DDD. If you've ever heard some old tune that you wanted to hear again, and never knew its name, there's a good chance you'll find it on this CD"

"The CD name is a little ambitious, but if you want an excellent sampler of the best in big band, this is a great choice. True, some songs are not up to current recording standards, but the quality is very good for recordings made back in the 30s and 40s. I don't care much for the Buddy Rich and Woody Herman songs (too "Las Vegas" sounding) but everything else is first rate. Totally appropriate that it ends with "Sing Sing Sing", which I consider the best big band song ever recorded."
