In 1954 Ray acquired the rights to the Billy May band just as Glenn Miller's band has had several different personalities fronting the band, such as Tex Beneke, Buddy DeFranco and Jimmy Henderson, Ray in turn hired Sam Donahue to front the Billy May band for a period of time. Later Sam Donahue started his own band, at which time Ray hired various other personalities to front the band, the last one being England's own Andy Prior. The arrangements in this album were all written by Billy May at different times, for different recordings, which were compiled for this CD. The line up features a variety of swing musicians including Si Zentner, Johnny Best, Manny Klein, Wilbur Schwartz, Skeets Herfurt, Gorgie Auld, Leo Anthony, Alvin Stoller, Al Hendrickson and more.
