Swing Era, Stan Kenton
Gerald Arnst | 03/08/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I didn't realize that these were various films instead of a concert. However, I was pleased with this 40's material containing tracks from Charlie Barnet and Les Brown also.

Hard to come by material this old."
Where's Dizzy
B. W. Fish | London U.K. | 05/21/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"An essential archive with Kenton, Les Brown, Charlie Barnet and June Christie but unfortunately, no Dizzy!"
Not what I expected
