The Last Years, 1940-1943
4.5 out of 5 stars with 15 reviews
Box sets are an unlikely way to begin collecting an artist, but there's an addictive pull to Fats Waller's work. He was a larger-than-life personality who could leap from earnest sentimentality to outright mockery in the next breath, or take a lightweight novelty tune and make it far more novel with a few verbal and musical touches. While jazz has had numerous pianists who hum, grunt, or mumble while they're playing, Waller was the only one who could turn the compulsion into comic patter, and th

Best of Big Bands: Gene Krupa Drum Boogie
4.2 out of 5 stars with 39 reviews
Few If any could stir a crowd the way the frenetic Gene Krupa could from behind his drum kit. Having established himself as a bona-fide star with the Benny Goodman Orchestra, Krupa struck out on his own and was an immediate smash. These recordings, his finest from the early '40s, testify to the power of Krupa and his band, and their distinctive ability to boogie with the very best. Tracks:-  DRUM BOOGIE (3:06)  FULL DRESS HOP (2:47)  THERE'LL BE SOME CHANGES MADE (3:05)  NO NAME JIVE

An essential piece of blues and rock history! While Chess Records' legacy as a dominating and shaping force on rock and roll is well chronicled, you don't really the company's signiificance until you're confronted with the music itself. This 2-disc, 36-track compilation drives that point home. Whether they're blues tunes that have been covered so many times they now are staples of everyone's set list (Muddy Water's ''I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man,'' ''I Just Want to Make Love to You''; Bo Diddley

How appropriate that the first track is by Jack Hylton and his Orchestra. This was the great show band of the 1930s. Not for them the routine of the fixed hotel, restaurant or ballroom engagement. Prestige was maintained and enhanced by regular appearances on stage at theatres and halls not only throughout Britain, but also on the continent.. We are pleased to present this collection of twenty-two tracks, each one by a different orchestra, transferred from the original discs, all of which were i

Love comes in many guises these days. We live in meretricious times so love for self, love for money and most corrosively, love for power are commonplace. And increasingly the love that once dared not speak its name is accepted and promoted. Oh yes, and lest we forget, there still remains the kind of love that we celebrate in this collection of popular fine old songs from yesteryear.Track List: Track Listing Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong - Dream A Little Dream Of Me Dean Martin - If Billie H
