Product Description:

Audio Remasterer: John R.T. Davies.
Liner Note Author: Jeff Healey.
Recording information: 02/14/1928-11/21/1928.
Subtitled "The Complete Recordings," this Canadian disc presents 23 tracks, five of which are alternate takes, tracing the earliest recordings by the Dorsey Brothers and Their Orchestra (as the original records had it) for OKeh Records in 1928. Both Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey had recently left the Paul Whiteman band and settled in New York to work as studio musicians, and these tracks mark the beginning of a six-year period during which they led studio-only aggregations. They are loose and lively affairs in which the brothers (Tommy often playing trumpet) take the bulk of the solos. Also heard to one extent or another are such notables as Adrian Rollini, Eddie Lang, Frank Teschmacher, and Jack Teagarden, while Eugene Ormandy conducts one session and Glenn Miller arranges another. Three of the original singles -- "Coquette," "Dixie Dawn," and "Sally of My Dreams" (the first two with vocals by Bill Dutton, the last sung by Smith Ballew) -- made the sales charts, enabling the brothers to record similar material regularly until the start of the Depression. ~ William Ruhlmann
