With all due respect to his star vocalists Marion Hutton, Ray Eberle, and Tex Beneke, this album of 22 "Broadcast Instrumentals" weighs in with the best of the all-purpose Glenn Miller compilations. Harvested from radio airchecks recorded between March 19, 1940, and September 22, 1942, these "unsung" performances by one of America's most popular big bands accurately reflect Miller's selection and maintenance of a well-balanced repertoire, including classic jazz warhorses like "Tiger Rag," W.C. Handy's "St. Louis Blues," and King Oliver's "Dippermouth Blues," as well as danceable contemporary swing tunes such as Tiny Bradshaw's "Jersey Bounce" and Count Basie's "One O'Clock Jump." True to form, Miller also included staid traditional fare like Stephen Foster's "I Dream of Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair" and military marvels like "Anchors Aweigh" and "On Brave Old Army Team." Arrangers include Eddie Barefield (composer of "Fanhat Stomp"), Eddie Durham (a crucial component of the Basie band), and Billy May (destined for a lucrative career with Capitol Records and Frank Sinatra). Excellent big band swing, strictly instrumental. ~ arwulf arwulf
