In this second look at the golden age of American dance bands (the first can be heard on the Jasmine compilation 'The Golden Age of American Sweet Bands'), the concept has been extended to include some names that are more often associated with the 'Swing Era', names such as Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, and The Dorseys. For 'sweet' bands read 'hotel', or more to the point, 'dance' bands and remember that the 'swingers' all played for dancing, especially in their early days so can sit comfortably alongside most of the names represented in this collection. We should also remember that many of the so-called sweet bands could let down their hair, pump up the tempo and give out with some sprightly tunes and swing, though until Goodman did just that in the Palomar Ballroom in Los Angeles in August 1935, the swing era had yet to be born.
