This 20-track collection of tracks by Charlie Barnet & His Orchestra doesn't contain any of Barnet's best-known recordings like "Skyliner" or the 1939 hit cover of "Cherokee," so it isn't necessarily a good starting point for a historical overview of his career. There are, however, some great cuts here, including "Really?" and the opening track, "Darn That Dream," as well as credible arrangements of several Duke Ellington compositions, including "In a Jam" and "C Jam Blues."
