Description by

Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra had a reputation as a "sweet" band, but they were not totally dismissed by jazz critics. Downbeat magazine named them as the best swing band in the country in 1937, and the "sweetest" band of 1938. They also placed high in Metronome magazine's annual polls, and appeared in films like "Time Out For Rhythm" and "Gals, Inc." This collection contains twenty-four recordings that the band made for the Brunswick label between the years 1932 and 1934, a time period where the band was also playing on "The Camel Caravan" radio program -- a show that increased their notoriety immensely.
