They, called him "The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing" after he and his newly-formed band had scored a huge hit with a barely remembered 1932 ballad, I’m Getting Sentimental Over You. There is no need here for an analysis of each track in this album; playing them will say all that needs to be said about them individually. I can do no better than to end this note with a quotation from George T. Simon, for some years editor of Metronome, in his book The Big Bands: “In retrospect - and in big band history - Tommy Dorsey's must be recognized as the greatest all-round dance band of them all." The truth of this appraisal will be found on this record. Personnel: Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra - Tommy Dorsey (trombone) directing: Andy Ferretti, Sterling Bose, Bill Graham and Cliff Weston (trumpets); Ben Pickering and Dave Jacobs (trombones); Sid Stoneburn (clarinet & alto saxophone); Noni Bernardi (alto saxophone); Clyde Rounds (alto & tenor saxophone);Johnny van Eps (tenor saxophone); Paul Mitchell (piano); Mac Cheikes (guitar); Gene Traxler (stringbass); Sam Rosen (drums). On some tracks Joe Ortolano (trombone) replaces Jacobs; Sam Weiss (drums) replaces Rosen. Tommy Dorsey and his Clambake Seven - Sterling Bose (trumpet); Tommy Dorsey (trombone); Sid Stoneburn (clarinet); Johnny van Eps (tenor saxophone); Dick Jones (piano); William Schaffer (guitar); Gene Traxler (string-bass); Sam Weiss (drums).
