Normally when I see that an album has been released by the Longines Symphonette Society, I’m a little leary about what’s actually on it. I’ve been burned before. For example, the Longines album in episode 30 with Bing Crosby featured on the front cover was just some of his favorite recordings, not necessarily him.

After carefully researching the music on this record, I think I have found a gem. It’s the King of Swing before he BECAME the famous bandleader he became.

So, get ready to hear some influential musicians who recorded together more than 90 years ago in Volume 152 Goodman’s Greats.
