Swingin': Big Band Swing and Jazz from the 1930s and 1940s

Various Artists FW02861 / FJ 2861

This collection captures the freshness and excitement of the first years of swing, as bands grew larger and arrangers worked to find a balance between melody and rhythm. From Gene Krupa and his Chicagoans to Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra, these delightful performances present the hot style of the 1930s and 1940s.
