Tommy DORSEY and His Clambake Seven - Complete Recordings 1935-1939 - Double CD
Though he might have been ranked second at any given moment to Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, or Harry James, Tommy Dorsey was overall the most popular bandleader of the swing era who's high standards and attention to detail made him a maestro of the swing band. Through his love of jazz Tommy Dorsey introduced the concept of the what was to be the first 'band-within-a- band' using members of his own orchestra to form a small group to continue his astute mix of sweet and swing. From the lively introduction of 'The Music Goes 'Round and Around' we're off and swinging, and with great musicians throughout this fantastic 2 CD set including Sterling Bose, Bud Freeman and of course Dorsey himself you won't be able to switch this off until the group play their last note! Amongst all the fine solo's to be heard in this collection, it is impossible to forget the superb trombone of Tommy Dorsey just listen to the solos on 'Sailing At Midnight', 'My Own', 'You're As Pretty As A Picture' and 'Thanks For Everything' if any proof be needed. How about a touch of that sauce!
