Description

This compilation features the small groups made up from within the big bands of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Gene Krupa, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, Harry James and Duke Ellington. Many big bands followed a trend originally set by Tommy Dorsey which was to form a 'band-within-a band'. By using just a few members of their own orchestras big band names were able to create more spontaneous jazz through the musical freedom of a smaller group. Featuring many great standards and original rare recordings that offer an insight into the development of many of the most famous names in big band/orchestral jazz. This collection of informal, enthusiastic performances puts forward some truly exciting gems some of which may have, and wrongly so, been forgotten. Quite simply a must have!
