AllMusic Review by

This collectors' LP contains four nostalgic big-band performances from 1946 (including a remake of "And the Angels Sing" with singer Martha Tilton) and a 1948 radio aircheck featuring the Benny Goodman Sextet. Most unusual about the latter are the three fine vocals by then-unknown Patti Page and the modern tenor solos from Wardell Gray, who is showcased on a version of "Indiana" that is actually closer to the bop world's "Donna Lee."
