Reference: OCM CD 017

Along with Duke Ellington & Benny Carter, Sy Oliver is likely to be the most important Swing arranger the Jazz has ever produced. This CD provides us with a wide view of Oliver's Decca tenure. We include the recordings he made leading various studio bands with great musicians, most of whom came from Lunceford's original Orchestra: Paul Webster, Joe Thomas, Taft Jordan, Fred Williams, Henderson Chambers, Billy Kyle & Jimmy Crawford among others.
