• Various Artists - Swing Time - The Bands Within The Bands

Featuring The Small Groups Off: Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Gene Krupa, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, Harry James, Duke Ellington

Many big bands followed a trend originally set by Tommy Dorsey which was to form a 'band-within-a band'. By using just a few members of their own orchestras big band names were able to create more spontaneous jazz through the musical freedom of a smaller group.

Featuring many great standards and original rare recordings that offer an insight into the development of many big names including: Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Gene Krupa, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, Harry James and Duke Ellington.

This collection of informal, enthusiastic performances puts forward some truly exciting gems some of which may have, and wrongly so, been forgotten. Quite simply a must have!
