AllMusic Review by

Friedman Fairfax's Big Bands is a budget-line collection of obscure recordings, including rerecordings and live tracks, by such big band stalwarts as Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, Clyde McCoy, Tommy Dorsey, and Duke Ellington. There's some good music here, but the packaging, fidelity, and presentation is lackluster, which means this isn't an ideal choice, even for budget-minded casual fans.
