View All Available Formats & Editions


Culled from the vaults of Columbia Records, Big Band Instrumentals: 16 Most Requested Songs is an excellent collection of the biggest hits and most popular songs from the big-band era. Although it isn't quite definitive, few samplers are as good and as entertaining as this one -- many songs casual fans will want are here, including Fletcher Henderson's "King Porter Stomp," Chick Webb's "Stompin' at the Savoy," Benny Goodman's "Sing, Sing, Sing" and "Let's Dance," Woody Herman's "Woodchopper's Ball," Harry James' "You Made Me Love You," Count Basie's "One O'Clock Jump," Gene Krupa's "After You've Gone," Claude Thornhill's "Snowfall," Charlie Barnet's "Skyliner" and Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady" and "Take the 'A' Train."
