When it comes to the era of the big bands many Americans forget (or never knew) that Great Britain had a substantial swing and dance scene of its own. The bandleader Ambrose, though British, got some of his musical training in the USA, and a few American musicians even joined him. His dance band was as popular in the U.K. as Glenn Miller's or Tommy Dorsey's in America--in fact, Jimmy Dorsey, Tommy's brother and a leader himself, greatly admired the Ambrose orchestra. While less jazz-oriented than dance-oriented, the Ambrose 1929 SESSIONS displays a classy band at the height of its powers at the beginning of what would be Britain's own Swing Era.
