AllMusic Review by

Eight-song 10" LP of some of the better songs cut by Artie Shaw with his Gramercy Five, in two sets of sessions five years apart, though you'd never know it from the consistency. The 1945 group was much more interesting, however, starting with Roy Eldridge's trumpet at the core of the group's sound and a source of a lot of its energy.
