AllMusic Review by

Capitalizing on the swing craze, Blue Note has issued this compilation that pulls from the vaults at Aladdin, Black & White, Blue Note and Capitol. This collection stands out from the pack, however, because of the seminal role that each of those labels played in the history of swing. Some of the greatest dance songs of the swing era are featured here, including hits from Louis Prima, Louis Jordan, Nat King Cole, and Jay McShann.
