Overview

Les Elgart's band, the band with that sound, pursued a style of sweet music that was restrained but punchy and elegant yet very playful -- in similar company to Henry Mancini's fizzy champagne euphoria. Sophisticated Swing, a Collectables repackaging of three distinct two-fers, presents six original LPs ranging from 1953's Sophisticated Swing to 1961's It's De-Lovely. Arranger Charles Albertine took full advantage of emerging stereo technology without resorting to gimmicks, and the band is usually in top form. Those wishing to dip a toe in the waters should avoid the full plunge of a three-disc box, but each of the discs are also available separately.
