Ultimate Big Band Collection: Tommy Dorsey

Ultimate Big Band Collection: Tommy Dorsey

by Tommy Dorsey
     
 
The Tommy Dorsey volume in Sony's Masterworks Jazz series is a solid, decent-sounding, budget-priced introduction to this band's hits and best-known numbers during a peak period. Dorsey's band was a dance unit to be sure, and everything here, from its midtempo ballads such as "I'm Gettin' Sentimental Over You," to its slower, bluesy numbers like "After You've Gone,"

Overview

The Tommy Dorsey volume in Sony's Masterworks Jazz series is a solid, decent-sounding, budget-priced introduction to this band's hits and best-known numbers during a peak period. Dorsey's band was a dance unit to be sure, and everything here, from its midtempo ballads such as "I'm Gettin' Sentimental Over You," to its slower, bluesy numbers like "After You've Gone," to the ubiquitous "Boogie Woogie," reflects this. For those looking for an introduction to one of swing's premier units, this little set will do you right.
