Trumpeter Les Elgart played with Bunny Berigan and Woody Herman before branching out on his own. These two original Columbia albums on one CD, combine both up-tempo songs and romantic ballads. Standard pop classics such as "Stella By Starlight," "Anything Goes" and "Moonglow" get the Les Elgart's memorable big band treatment.
