"My guess is that if you're looking at this album, you're looking for an introduction to classic big band swing hits like "Sing, Sing, Sing" and "In the Mood." The CD serves this purpose well. However, the best reasons to buy this CD are tracks 9, 10, and 11. Lionel Hampton and Illinois Jacquet tear it up on "Flying Home." This is the best cut of "Four Brothers" I've ever heard. And the trombone solo on "Turn me Loose" (I think it might be Al Grey) is great stuff. If you want an introduction to the big band period, this is pretty good, but you may find yourself hooked on the later big bands, which are much more impressive. It's a good buy."
