It's D'Lovely 1947-1950

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Although the swing era was over by 1947, Tommy Dorsey put together a new orchestra and continued playing swing as if the era of the big bands was still in its prime and completely ignoring bebop. Due to TD's celebrity status, he was able to keep his orchestra working and recording pretty regularly during 1947-1950, the period covered by this CD, which includes 24 of his best recordings from the period and emphasizes the more swinging and jazz-oriented performances. The first two numbers feature an all-star octet backing singer Hannah Williams that includes trumpeter Charlie Shavers, clarinetist Johnny Mince, and pianist Teddy Wilson.

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Although the swing era was over by 1947, Tommy Dorsey put together a new orchestra and continued playing swing as if the era of the big bands was still in its prime and completely ignoring bebop. Due to TD's celebrity status, he was able to keep his orchestra working and recording pretty regularly during 1947-1950, the period covered by this CD, which includes 24 of his best recordings from the period and emphasizes the more swinging and jazz-oriented performances. The first two numbers feature an all-star octet backing singer Hannah Williams that includes trumpeter Charlie Shavers, clarinetist Johnny Mince, and pianist Teddy Wilson. The final two selections on the CD feature a Dixieland version of the Clambake Seven with cornetist Bobby Hackett and clarinetist Peanuts Hucko; it is a pity that Dorsey did not record in that setting more often. Otherwise, the program features excellent big-band swing with solos from both Shavers and trumpeter Ziggy Elman, tenor saxophonist Corky Corcoran, clarinetist Buddy DeFranco, and Dorsey himself, along with a variety of lesser-known players. Most of the material was formerly rare, making this an excellent acquisition for swing fans.
