AllMusic Review by

Living Era's series of reissues from the golden age of jazz are a welcome thing, and this 26-track collection of trumpeter Ray Anthony's big-band material is no exception. Though Anthony and his orchestra arrived at the tail end of the Swing Era (these recordings were made between 1949 and 1954), there is still plenty to admire in the bandleader's arrangements, playing, and fine originals. This comes recommended for fans of Glenn Miller, Harry James, and other practitioners of streamlined, mainstream swing.
