R&B Jukebox Hits 1942

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This series on Acrobat is generally credible but occasionally stretched to the breaking point. There are a couple of cases here where that happens, to be sure, but for the most part there are plenty of solid shakers and quakers on this 20-track set. Louis Jordan is here, as are Tampa Red, Earl Hines, the King Cole Trio, and many of the WWII-era big bands burning through some R&B-oriented stompers swing style. Lil Green is also here with her big hit "Let's Be Friends," and a few hard driving moments from Duke Ellington and Bea Booze with the original "See See Rider Blues." But Paul Whiteman? Barney Bigard? Jimmie Lunceford? R&B? Uh uh. There's plenty of great stuff ...
