After the release of the film The Benny Goodman Story in 1956, there was a temporary resurgence of interest in Big Band music. This was for Benny a great opportunity and he was able to secure the services of the very best musicians around. This set of recordings from the Yale University Archives amply demonstrates what they achieved. Zoot Sims, for example, provides some really classy tenor solos and all the various pianists are first class. Sir Roland Hanna, Russ Freeman, John Bunch and Pete Jolly are all great soloists as well as wonderful accompanists. The excellent sleeve-notes by Loren Schoenburg provide not only useful background to the music, but very detailed personnel lists for each session. They read like a "Who's Who" of the best in the business! This CD is a must for Big Band fans because it shows just how great the latter-day BG bands were and that his own virtuosity was undiminished. (Don Mather, MusicWeb-International)
