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

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.
