Swinging the Blues


1 New & Used Starting at $74.97


As the title suggests, Swinging The Blues features big band groups interpreting blues classics. Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, and Woody Herman are among the bandleaders represented here, and tracks like Fletch Henderson's "Memphis Blues," Bob Crosby's "Savoy Blues," and Don Redman's "Hot & Anxious" show the synergistic relationship between swing and blues.
