AllMusic Review by

Tommy Dorsey's wartime orchestra is well featured on these radio airchecks. With such stars as drummer Buddy Rich (and on three songs, Gene Krupa), clarinetist Buddy DeFranco and trumpet Charlie Shavers, Dorsey kept up his musical standards despite the change in both the public's taste and the continuing evolution of jazz. With the Sentimentalists, Bonnie Lou Williams and Stuart Foster contriuting vocals, the mixture of jazz and dance music heard on this CD is typical of Dorsey's mid-'40s music.
