• Jerry GRAY & His Orch. - On The Bandstand with The Man Behind Glenn Miller

One has a feeling, looking back on Jerry Gray’s career in popular music, that he never quite achieved the fame his rich talent deserved. His wonderful legacy of work for Shaw and Miller has given him a position among the all-time arranging elite but somehow it is those arrangements and many original compositions that have become more famous than the man who penned them. Leading his own orchestra, Jerry never attained the world-wide acclaim that attended some of his contemporaries; perhaps it was that natural reluctance of his to be a bandleader that prevented greater recognition. Be that as it may, Jerry Gray made a magnificent contribution to popular dance music and arrangements such as those selected for this collection, plus others like "In The Mood" and "Chattanooga Choo Choo" (for Miller) and "The Carioca" (for Shaw), are a lasting testament to his artistry.
