1 New & Used Starting at $7.50


In the early '50s Dorsey mostly recorded commercial (and long out-of-print) music for Decca, so these live performances are quite welcome. Emphasizing the jazz side of TD, one not only hears his trombone but Charlie Shavers's trumpet and Sam Donahue's tenor well-featured throughout this album. Bill Finegan contributed some of the arrangements to what would be Tommy Dorsey's last big band before rejoining forces with his brother Jimmy for a final nostalgia-based orchestra.
