Overview

This budget CD reissue is much better than it looks. As usual the Dorsey Brothers Orchestra of the 1950s can be counted on to provide first-class dance music but the jazz content of these radio broadcasts is much higher than expected. Even with a few throwaway vocals, there is strong solo space for the Dorseys (particularly Jimmy on clarinet), trumpeter Charlie Shavers and tenorman Buzzy Brauner while drummer Louie Bellson really pushes the band. A special highpoint is a wild Dixielandish version of "Panama."
