AllMusic Review by

It would be difficult to improve upon this French CBS reissue series; if only it were made available on CD. Volume Six covers a session apiece from 1933 and 1934 and then most of 1935. Among the classics are a spirited version of "In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree," "In a Sentimental Mood, " "Truckin'" and the four-part "Reminiscing in Tempo." Recommended if it can be found.
