While it isn't quite as packed with well-known standards as its predecessor, The Fabulous Swing Collection, More Fabulous Swing is still a pretty good sampler in its own right, featuring selections from many of the top swing acts of the music's golden age. Present are Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Roy Eldridge, Lionel Hampton, Sidney Bechet, Artie Shaw, and more. It isn't quite as good a basic primer or introduction to the genre as the aforementioned collection, but it's still a worthy successor and an enjoyable listen.
