America's Best Big Band Hits Review

by Al Campbell

This is yet another reissue of well-known big-band hits taken from the vaults of the Bluebird label. All of the old favorites are here, including "Chattanooga Choo Choo" (Glenn Miller), "Sing Sing Sing" (Benny Goodman), "Cherokee" (Charlie Barnet), "Take the 'A' Train" (Duke Ellington), and "Tuxedo Junction" (Erskine Hawkins). While there is nothing new here for swing fans, America's Best Big Band Hits is a decent-sounding budget disc for those who don't already have this material.
