Whether it's these rarities or well-known numbers like "Woodchopper's Ball," "Your Father's Moustache," "Caldonia," and "Bijou" all of which are here, it's first-rank swing that was very progressive for the mid-'40s, topped off with good liner notes by Charles L. Granata and Herman pianist Ralph Burns.
