Product Description & Reviews

To wartime America, music provided both entertainment and uplift. There may have been rationing and general shortages, but dance halls flourished as never before, fueled by the bands of the era. Despite constant depletion of their musicians by the draft, the bandleaders still found able replacements from the small towns and big cities of America. Never before or since has such musical talent existed. On this CD you ll hear the talent and the tunes distilled through the swing of the bands that kept Americans dancing and singing during the darkest days of World War II - tunes that buoyed the spirits of soldiers at home and overseas, and perfectly expressed the American spirit of affirmation in the face of adversity.
