AllMusic Review by

The two-disc anthology, The Jimmie Lunceford Collection: 1930-47, brings together tracks recorded by the influential swing-era big-band leader. Included are cuts from Lunceford's earliest days when he was leading the Chickasaw Syncopators, all the way through to his heyday performing at the Cotton Club during the '30s, and finally up to his last recordings made prior to his death in 1947. This is a solid overview of Lunceford's career.
