•    This is a must have for any Big Band collection

Though he might have been ranked second at any given moment to Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller or Harry James, Tommy Dorsey was overall the most popular bandleader of the swing era that lasted from 1935 to 1945.

His remarkably melodic trombone playing was the signature sound of his orchestra, but he successfully straddled the hot and sweet styles of swing with a mix of ballads and novelty songs. He provided showcases to vocalists like Frank Sinatra, Dick Haymes, and Jo Stafford, and he employed inventive arrangers such as Sy Oliver and Bill Finegan. He was the biggest-selling artist in the history of RCA Victor Records, one of the major labels, until the arrival of Elvis Presley, who was first given national exposure on the 1950s television show he hosted with his brother Jimmy.

After Dorsey broke with his brother in the mid-1930s, he led an extremely popular and highly successful band from the late 1930s into the 1950s. He is best remembered for standards such as “Opus One,” “Song of India,” “Marie,” “On Treasure Island,” and his biggest hit single “I’ll Never Smile Again.”
