Blues On Parade

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This single CD gives a definitive look at Woody Herman's first orchestra, the Decca ensemble he led during 1936-1942 billed "the Band That Plays the Blues." Although he also recorded many vocal ballads during this era, the emphasis here is on hot swing with such highlights as the original version of "Woodchopper's Ball," "Blue Prelude," "Blue Flame," the humorous "Fan It," and two takes of "Blues on Parade." Also heard are performances by Herman's early small combos the Woodchoppers and the Four Chips along with a Dizzy Gillespie composition/arrangement "Down Under" that hints at Woody Herman's future.
