Bill Challis contributed most of the best arrangements for the Jean Goldkette Orchestra from 1926-1927. Sixty years later, he conducted Vince Giordano's Nighthawks in their versions of 16 of his charts including a pair of three-song medleys.

Not only are such songs as "Proud of a Baby Like You," "My Pretty Girl," and "Clementine" brought back, but also some charts that Jean Goldkette's band played but never recorded such as "The Blue Room," "I've Found a New Baby," and "Tiger Rag". Highly recommended for 1920s and classic jazz collectors.
