It's the Way That You Swing It: The Hits of Jimmie

by Jimmie Lunceford & His OrchestraJimmie Lunceford & His Orchestra

CD(German Import)


It's the Way That You Swing It: The Hits of Jimmie captures 48 gems by the big band leader and saxophonist recorded in the heyday of the swing era. These tracks include such Jimmie Lunceford standards as "Rhythm Is Our Business," "Four or Five Times," "For Dancer's Only" and "'Tain't What You Do (It's the Way That You Do It)." While the Jasmine release is recommended to casual fans, as a first purchase the single-disc Rhythm Is Our Business on ASV/Living Era would also do the trick.
