Overview

During the war years and shortly afterwards, the Armed Forces network featured top jazz bands (mostly orchestras) on their Jubilee shows plus specialty acts and a bit of comedy. Two complete shows are reissued on this 2001 CD. The first half features six numbers by the 1944 Count Basie Orchestra with trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison, trombonist Dicky Wells, Lester Young and Buddy Tate on tenors, and a vocal apiece by Jimmy Rushing, Thelma Carpenter and Earle Warren. There is also a comedy routine with Butterfly McQueen. Much better are Basie's versions of "Avenue C," "Basie Boogie" and "Jumpin' At The Woodside." The second show is a bit of a grabbag, with numbers by arranger Jimmy Mundy's Orchestra, pianist Erroll Garner ("Erroll's Bounce"), a quartet led by harpist Robert Maxwell, the Nat King Cole Trio ("Come To Baby Do") and jokester Slim Gaillard ("Yeproc Haresy"). Overall, nothing essential occurs but the CD does give one a flavor for the time period.
