Very cheap price for my favorite assortment of 1940's divas, I think this is another one that cost less than the shipping and handling!

Album Notes
A variety of different singers (most from the swing era) are heard on this excellent collection. The music is enjoyable, if generally not all that essential, although Mildred Bailey's "I'm Nobody's Baby" (with its advanced Eddie Sauter arrangement and Roy Eldridge's futuristic trumpet solo), Billie Holiday's "All of Me," Woody Hermants "Caldonia" and "Nat Meets June" from Nat King Cole and June Christy with the Metronome All-Stars are classics. Also heard from are Maxine Sullivan, Big Joe Turner, Jack Teagarden, Cab Calloway, Slim Gaillard, Anita O'Day, Jimmy Rushing, Peggy Lee, Roy Eldridge, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Hot Lips Page and Sarah Vaughan. ~ Scott Yanow
