The Les Brown Band did not have the success of the bands Such as Goodman, Shaw, James, Miller and The Dorsey Brothers in the late thirties and early forties, but over the years Les built a band that had a good clean crisp sound, with good soloists and a tight muted brass sound that identifies it as the Les Brown Band. He only has to start to play his theme Leapfrog and you know at once who you are listening to. As is usual with a Les Brown band he features a strong lineup of musicians with amongst others Dave Pell, Rollie Bundock, Don Fagerquist, Butch Stone, Stumpy Brown and Jack Sperling. Also featured is a powerful lineup of vocalists including Lucy Ann Polk, Jo Ann Greer, The Modernaires, The Ames Brothers and Jud Conlon’s Rhythmaires. I think that time will say of Les Brown And His Band Of Renown that they were one of the Big Band greats.
