February 26, 2008

Features:
  • This collection, impeccably restored to pristine clarity, is a own time machine, a way of buying into those far-off times of glitzy pleasure, when sober reality was simply not on the agenda
  • Including The Charleston, in a version by the Savoy Orpheans which is notable for some typically tricky saxophone choruses and the danceable tempo
  • With Paul Whiteman - a true giant of American dance music in every sense, for not only was Whiteman a man of impressive physical bulk, he was also the 'King of Jazz',
  • Featuring Louis Armstrong, the most celebrated jazz musician of his day. His creativity, instrumental command and rhythmic daring setting the pace for a generation of musicians
  • Danceable 1920s tempos, strong melodies, wacky lyrics, wailing saxophones, banjo and tuba rhythms, a sense of fun, no thought in mind other than the creation of pleasure

8. Perfect Swing: Best Swing Bands of the 20s 30s & 40s
By: Various Artists, Jimmie Lunceford, Teddy Wilson, Count Basie, Harry James, Duke Ellington, Benny Carter
February 26, 2008

Features:
  • Of course, to lovers of between-the-wars jazz, swing is far more than a portmanteau term for a musical style. But try to get a fan or indeed, a critic to define what they mean by swing and you tend to get a response which echoes Fats Waller's famous dictum: "If you have to ask, you'll never know.
  • What better way to open our marvellous collection of re-mastered classics from the swing era than with At The Woodchopper's Ball? Woody Herman's greatest commercial and popular success features Woody's haunting blues clarinet and Neil Reid's punchy trombone with Saxie Mansfield on tenor-saxophone and trumpeter Steady Nelson.
  • Benny Goodman makes two appearances in our compilation and that is only fitting, given his dominant position in the swing pantheon. Christened the 'King of Swing' by his promotions people, Goodman was an incisive instrumentalist, a clarinet virtuoso who had emerged from Chicago's Jewish ghetto, made good musically and formed an excellent big band.
  • It was Lil Armstrong (nee Hardin) who set her husband Louis on the path to stardom with some astute promotional ideas. When he moved on and they divorced, Lil re-built her career as a bandleader and cut some tasty small-group records. Her tribute to the Lindy Hop (a dance craze pioneered at Harlem's Savoy Ballroom) spots her girlish vocal and some hot trumpet from the underrated Shirley Clay.
  • Louis Armstrong so much liked Swing That Music that he used it as the title for his (ghosted) autobiography. He made two versions of this exciting piece in 1936, the first with his own band and this with the popular Jimmy Dorsey orchestra just three months later.
