Swingin' Down

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This LP and Hep 1003 contain the entire recorded output of Earl Hines's big band of 1932-33 including all of the alternate takes, an underrated orchestra. At the time Hines's featured soloists were trumpeter/singer Walter Fuller, trombonist Trummy Young, and the reeds of Darnell Howard, Omer Simeon and Cecil Irwin, in addition to the brilliant pianist/leader. The fine arrangements particularly Jimmy Mundy's show off this band's power. "Blue Drag," "Rosetta," "Cavernism," "Madhouse" and "Swingin' Down" are among the best performances.
