Product Description:

It may be a reflection of personal preference, or musical prejudice, but many consider this the best single volume of Dynamic Entertainment's Hit Parade series. Not coincidentally, it's also got just about the highest percentage of top-flight jazz performers represented of any of the volumes, and even the pop outfits here mostly owe a lot to their jazz and big-band brethren. Speaking of brethren, both Dorsey brothers are here, Jimmy more than once for a change, and between them, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Woody Herman, Artie Shaw, Harry James, and Gene Krupa, plus the Ink Spots, the Andrews Sisters, and Bing Crosby, this is one cool collection, and one that still holds up as a pure listening pleasure nearly 70 years after all of the stuff here was recorded. The sound is first-rate like the music, and, as with the rest of this series, there are no notes -- nor are any needed, on music that speaks this well for itself. ~ Bruce Eder
