• Tommy DORSEY & His Greatest Band - Tommy Dorsey & His Greatest Band

For most people Tommy Dorsey's greatest band was the 1940-1942 edition with Frank Sinatra and the Pied Pipers, but this group comes close. The tracks are taken from transcription discs recorded in 1944. You can hear the band in full gallop on "Well, Git It" and dream to Tommy's silken trombone on "Like A Leaf In THe Wind". More than half of the songs aren't ones that are usually associated with the Dorsey band, and of course by this point Sinatra and The Pied Pipers had given away to Stuart Foster and The Sentimentalists. Nonetheless the thrill of hearing any 1940's Tommy Dorsey makes this CD worth having.

Also Available By Tommy Dorsey JASBOX 2/4 and JASCD 539.
