About

This 10-CD box set contains twenty rare, classic original big band albums from the 1950s. They range from classics by Count Basie and Duke Ellington via tributes to the latter by 'newcomers' such as Clark Terry and Dizzy Gillespie, on to the cool sounds of Marty Paich, Stan Kenton and Pete Rugolo and the advanced arrangements of Gil Evans, Bill Holman or George Russell.
