The Best of the Big Bands Sampler

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Best of the Big Bands Sampler contains 16 highlights from the Columbia vaults, including selections by Cab Calloway "Minnie the Moocher's Wedding", Glen Gray "Limehouse Blues", Les Brown "Sentimental Journey", Benny Goodman "Taking a Chance on Love", Woody Herman "Everybody Knew But Me", Sammy Kaye "Harbor Lights", Les Brown "Leap Frog" and Larry Elgart "Woodchopper's Ball".
