Product Description:

SOPHISTICATED SWING contains 6 LPs on 3 CDs: SOPHISTICATED SWING (1953)/JUST ONE MORE DANCE (1954)/THE GREAT SOUND OF LES ELGART (1959)/IT'S DE-LOVELY (1961)/THE BAND WITH THAT SOUND (1960)/DESIGNS FOR DANCING (1960).
Originally released on Columbia Records.
Les Elgart's band, the band with that sound, pursued a style of sweet music that was restrained but punchy and elegant yet very playful -- in similar company to Henry Mancini's fizzy champagne euphoria. Sophisticated Swing, a Collectables repackaging of three distinct two-fers, presents six original LPs ranging from 1953's Sophisticated Swing to 1961's It's De-Lovely. Arranger Charles Albertine took full advantage of emerging stereo technology without resorting to gimmicks, and the band is usually in top form. Those wishing to dip a toe in the waters should avoid the full plunge of a three-disc box, but each of the discs are also available separately. ~ John Bush
