Let's Swing [Box]

CD

Overview

Let's Swing is a pretty good collection of large-group swing and big-band hits of the '40s. Though it's aimed squarely at the swing-revival audience and includes less than ten tracks per disc, it does have such classics as "One O'Clock Jump" by Count Basie, "Take the 'A' Train" by Duke Ellington, "Why Don't You Do Right" by Benny Goodman, "Flying Home" by Lionel Hampton, "Begin the Beguine" by Artie Shaw, "Flat Foot Floogee" by Louis Armstrong and "Choo Choo Ch-Boogie" by Louis Jordan, and is usually available at a discount price.
