AllMusic Review by

As part of Delta's Legends Of series, these 63 tracks provide only adequate representation of Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Jimmy Dorsey. While the performances and sound quality are fine, the superior vitality associated with these giants of swing is best represented elsewhere. Seek out Decca's Anthology of Big Band Swing (1930-1955) or RCA's Only Big Band CD You'll Ever Need for definitive performances of the era.
