AllMusic Review by

As part of St. Clair's Gold Collection series, these 20 tracks provide only adequate representation of Benny Goodman, Stan Kenton, Charlie Barnett, and Tommy Dorsey. Both the performances and sound quality lack the superior vitality associated with these giants of the swing era. With the enormous amount of jazz compilations available at prices to fit any budget, definitely pass on this one.
