Filled with boisterous big band numbers and Dixieland swingers, Swing Legends: The Bob Cats and Orchestra is a wonderful collection of classic jazz performed by Bob Crosby and his band. The music here is quite good, and the sound quality is absolutely superb. Considering the time most of this was recorded, it is a miracle that this album sounds as good as it does. There are a few problems, mostly that a few of the tracks on the album begin to blend together. But fans of the genre will enjoy this very much, as there is a lot of quality material here and it avoids the sound problems that plagues most jazz collections from this period.
