AllMusic Review by

The sixth in a series of nine LPs put out by the collector's Ajax label, which reissues every selection led by swing-era trombonist Will Bradley, traces his big band during a four-month period. Since this is a "complete" series, the throwaway vocal ballads are included, along with the occasional stomps. Highlights include "Bounce Me Brother With A Solid Four" and "Call Me A Taxi" (both of which have spirited vocals by drummer Ray McKinley), plus instrumental renditions of "Swingin' Down The Lane," "When You And I Were Young, Maggie" and "In The Hall Of The Mountain King." Less interesting are seven Terry Allen vocals, so this out-of-print set is truly for completists.
