This is terrific Big Band Music done by one of the best, Glen Gray. I am 77 and old enough to know what I'm talking about, since I had the pleasure of hearing the big bands in person. This album and its sequel, "More Sounds of the Great Swing Bands" are the cleanest, most robust big band recordings I have ever heard. Most of the cuts are covers of other BB theme songs, but they never sounded this good on vinyl. Crank up your Bose system, or whatever you have, and be prepared to be thoroughly impressed. Your neighbors will be, also! And, if you want to impress your children with the power of great swing music, this would be the album to educate them. Leap Frog" sounds as good as it did live by Les Brown at the Carnation Pavilion at Disneyland, back when.

The Casa Loma Orchestra was a popular white big band which came out of Detroit in 1929 and was highly successful in the early 1930s. Despite slipping in popularity it continued with personnel changes into the 1960s. Glen Gray was billed as the leader. The band may have played old material in the latter part of its existence, but the original band had plenty of recordings to its name. See full bio at Glen Gray and The Casa Loma Orchestra.

Benny Goodman – 1937. the fledgling Goodman band on as a client then was so that MCA and the Goodman band would eventually knock the Casa Loma band (booked by rival Rockwell-O’Keefe-later General Artists Corp/GAC) off of the Camel Caravan. Benny took this talk very seriously. For the next eighteen months, he worked like a man possessed to make his band better musically, and more popular with audiences. Recorded by Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra for Decca on March.

Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra might've died in those first six months after the market crash, but they had two important advantages over a lot of the competition. Other bands frequently had a problem holding onto their best people as money and recognition became issues along with success, but all of the Casa Lomans were well taken care of by the standards of the time, and appreciated the gig that they had. New members were added as needed, and these included Grady Watts on trumpet and Clarence Hutchenrider on clarinet.
