The very complete two-fer is filled with brilliant small-group swing and classic jazz performances that reward repeated listenings. Among the many highlights there are 31 selections in all are "Rose of the Rio Grande," "I Wish I Were Twins," "Dr. Heckle and Mr. Jibe," "Strut, Miss Lizzie," "Sugar Foot Strut" and even "Inka Dinka Doo." Highly recommended to fans of vintage-style jazz.
