AllMusic Review by

While not nearly as jazz-oriented as his 1930s contemporaries Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington, the big band of Sammy Kaye rivaled them in popularity. Kaye’s specialty was gently swinging, genially sentimental pop-oriented dance music, and his popularity outlasted the Swing era and even stretched into the 1960s. The budget-line greatest-hits collection SWING & SWAY presents a fine, succinct introduction to Kaye’s mellow, easygoing style.
