Best of the Brunswick Years 1932-1934

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
After the Casa Loma Orchestra reorganized around Glen Gray in 1929, they relocated from Detroit to New York City and hit the big time with a residency at the Roseland Ballroom and twin recording contracts, one from OKeh as the Casa Loma Orchestra and another from Victor with Glen Gray added to the masthead. By 1935, they had topped the Hit Parade with "Blue Moon" and "When I Grow Too Old to Dream," for the Decca label. Between those periods, however, they were recording for Brunswick, an affiliation that produced both good music and popular music. Unfortunately, very little of it is included on Best of the Brunswick Years 1932-1934, despite the claims of its title. The ...

All Music Guide - John Bush
After the Casa Loma Orchestra reorganized around Glen Gray in 1929, they relocated from Detroit to New York City and hit the big time with a residency at the Roseland Ballroom and twin recording contracts, one from OKeh as the Casa Loma Orchestra and another from Victor with Glen Gray added to the masthead. By 1935, they had topped the Hit Parade with "Blue Moon" and "When I Grow Too Old to Dream," for the Decca label. Between those periods, however, they were recording for Brunswick, an affiliation that produced both good music and popular music. Unfortunately, very little of it is included on Best of the Brunswick Years 1932-1934, despite the claims of its title. The compilation avoids not only the Casa Loma sides that were most commercially successful "Sophisticated Lady," "Out in the Cold Again," "It's the Talk of the Town" during their Brunswick period, but also the ones that were most artistically defined "Blue Jazz," "Limehouse Blues," "Moonglow". Instead, the listener is subjected to second-rank sweet-band music with a few highlights, but much bland material. The vocal tracks are the most worthy, including a 1932 side with Connee Boswell acing her interpretation of Hoagy Carmichael's workaday "Washboard Blues," and the songs led by Casa Loma's talented pair of singer/musicians, Pee Wee Hunt reminiscent of Jack Teagarden and Kenny Sargent nearly a dead ringer for Bing Crosby. With a title like "The Uncollected Glen Gray & the Casa Loma Orchestra", this collection could be accepted for what it is.
