The 100th anniversary of Tommy Dorsey's birth is this Saturday,
November 19. How nice to have the new 3 CD Centennial Collection and
the 2 CD Essential Sinatra with Dorsey from Bluebird/Legacy for the
celebration of one of the most popular figures from the Swing Era.
The multi-faceted talents of TD are well displayed. Dance band leader,
one of the all-time great trombonists, small group Dixieland (Clambake
Seven), sideman from the early days, popular music star, hit maker and
discoverer and developer of new talent (Frank Sinatra).
Be sure to check out TD sitting in with the Ellington Band on Tonight
I Shall Sleep, and Ellington sitting in with TD Orch on The Minor Goes
Muggin' recorded on the same day in May 1945!
