Despite the presence of some great soloists, such as Coleman Hawkins, trumpeters Bobby Stark and Rex Stewart, and trombonist Benny Morton, the band's popularity continued to slide after the departure of arranger Don Redman. They were often reduced to recording crowd-pleasers for the Depression-era radio audience. That said, things began to turn around in 1932 and began to flourish again in 1933. This set chronicles the period rather well for a single disc, and the material -- even "Tiger Rag," which was a dud -- is well chosen and...

This set chronicles the period rather well for a single disc, and the material -- even "Tiger Rag," which was a dud -- is well chosen and serves as a very solid musicological and historical account of the changes in the band's aesthetic quality and, consequently, its change of fortune, because as 1934 arrived, the Henderson group was back on top. The sound quality here is good to excellent and the presentation is beautifully arranged chronologically.
