Ben Pollack was one of the earliest and most prolific exponents of syncopated dance music and jazz who managed to attract the finest musicians of the day to perform in his various orchestras. Glenn Miller, Jimmy McPartland, Jack Teagarden and a seventeen year old Benny Goodman all of whom feature on this CD. Pollack was a self taught drummer who fronted the band until he succeeded the drummer’s stool to Ray Bauduc who would later feature in Bob Crosby’s band with hit titles such as The Big Noise From Winnetka. The Bob Crosby Orchestra was in essence a reformed version of Pollack’s old orchestra. Pollack’s bands appeared in various guises: Ben Pollack And His Californians, Ben’s Bad Boys, Ben Pollack And His Orchestra and Ben Pollack And His Central Park Orchestra named after the famous venue in New York where the band was in residence. Often his various recordings were made under curious pseudonyms and for a variety of labels. Although this CD features four different incarnations of his band it mainly features the Central Park Orchestra which may have been the most successful manifestation of all his bands.
