The Alternative Takes, Vol. 1: 1928-1937

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
The Alternative Takes series is of immense value to consumers of the "French Classics" CD series. These are alternate takes in chronological order of historic jazz and some blues with a strong representation of the swing era. The Alternative Takes, Vol. 1: 1928-1937 contains 24 Benny Goodman tracks on a single disc including two takes of "Can't We Be Friends?," "Tiger Rag," and "Stars." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
