This is re-issue of a title (FADCD2011) previously released by Acrobat and now deleted, but much in demand from our customers, so it has been re-packaged, with eight tracks added. It comprises 48 tracks presented in chronological order tracing the recordings of the King Of Swing in all configurations of his outfits from his Trio, Quartet, Quintet and Sextet through to his renowned pioneering big band, focusing mainly on the era from 1935 to the early 40s, but also including some tracks from the late 40s and through the 50s.

This collection is a fine showcase not only for his unique clarinet styling but also the fine arrangements and the sound of which he was one of the creators and pioneers. It provides a snapshot of his extraordinarily prolific recorded output which gave him innumerable chart hits and is a fine introduction to his work for those discovering it for the first time, as well as collectors wanting an overview of an iconic and important figure of the jazz, big band and swing eras.
