AllMusic Review by

Claiming to feature selections from "His Greatest Band," this 22-track compilation of trombonist Tommy Dorsey's big bands (plural) spans a time period from as far back as 1935 to as far ahead as 1948. Although some fine music is included, this is far from an essential greatest-hits package, and since it does not highlight any particular band, the collection is at best specious. With no liner notes, dates, soloists, or any good information whatsoever, it's one to avoid. The Classics label reissue series is one you should prefer to purchase for any of the greatest Dorsey groups.
