Featured players along the way here include famed trumpeter Louis Armstrong, pianist Earl Hines, trombonist Jack Teagarden, and singer Mildred Bailey, among others. Although his recording career was relatively brief, Noone's influence, particularly on figures like Goodman, was immense. This generous set shows why.
