This is as good as most sweet bands ever got in the big-band era, a set of 20 tracks taken from radio transcriptions that show off a swinging pop sound, drawing on the key elements of jazz but never pushing the envelope too far. This was a good band, with a sound that was hot but with room for Carle's piano flourishes. Phyllis Lynne's vocals are a delight to hear. The sound quality is generally good ("The Trolley Song" is among the few numbers that reveals noticeable surface noise), and the selection, apart from the absence of a performance of "Sunrise Serenade," is a good cross-section of the band's range and repertory. ~ Bruce Eder
