CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It was my pleasure as a teenager to play with the Jan Garger band, joining him in Chicago at the Edgewater Beach Hotel and continuing on tour in seven states before the draft forced me into the fole of a pilot in the U. S. Marine Corps. Jan was a true professional and a joy to work for as were the other members, especially Muddy Berry who joined us from Kay Kyser on drums. My experiences with the band will always remain in memories as the greatest period in my life."

"Your designation of Jan Garber as "The Great" is wrong, isn't it? He always played with the title of "Idol of the Air Lanes" so far as I can remember. His was a fine orchestra, my favorite in the olden days. He conducted his orchestra into the '70s."
The Best of the Sweet Music

"The selections and the arrangements are uniquely those of Jan Garber and truly the best of the 1930's "sweet music" dance numbers. Some have compared Garber to Lombardo, but Garber's music captures the melodious beauty of the 1930s styling more than any other artist. It is more than the sweet sound that made his orchestra so popular, it is now a musical connection to the culture and music of the inter-war period."
