4.0 out of 5 stars Whiteman could swing after all, but...... January 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
What a wonderful surprise to discover that HEP (who else, one is tempted to ask) has finally decided to reissue some of Whiteman's recordings from the late thirties. Whereas most reissues tend to concentrate on the Bix, Trum and Bing years (to the uninitiated, the mid to late twenties) the thirties have been sadly overlooked. True, Whiteman's orchestra had lost its place as one of the biggest crowd-drawers, and it still was more of a show band than a swing band featuring only a minimal amount of jazz, but towards the end of the decade things began to improve. Whiteman tried to reclaim some of the ground lost to the Goodmans et al. by splitting his orchestra up into smaller units (e.g. the swing wing, the bouncing brass and the sax soctette) that featured Jack and Charlie Teagarden, Mif Mole (Big T's replacement), drummer George Wettling and saxists Art Drelinger on tenor and Al Gallodoro (whom I had the good fortune to see and hear performing as late as the 2001 North Sea Jazz Festival, where he recreated his role in the Whiteman Sax Soctette, as nimble fingered as ever) on alto. There is also that famous vocal group, The Modernaires, who had not yet attained the polish they would become famous for a little later with Glenn Miller. They are featured at lenght, perhaps a touch too much of them to suit the real jazz afficcionados, although their harmonizing was at the time very modern. Also, some of their titles are not very good, which detracts some of the listening pleasure. But all in all a good CD to have. Remastering and booklet info are, as always with HEP beyond reproach.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Whiteman perplex July 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In 1934, Jack Teagarden signed a five-year contract to play with Paul Whiteman's orchestra. It was a spectacularly ill-timed move because within a year big-band swing became enormously popular and two bands built around musicians who'd played with Teagarden in Ben Pollack's band in the 1920's, Benny Goodman's and Bob Crosby's, became major stars. Though Teagarden managed to sneak in a few good records in his Whiteman tenure ("I'm Coming, Virginia," included here, and the 1934 RCA Victor recordings "Fare Thee Well to Harlem" and "Christmas Night in Harlem," for the most part the music he played during the Whiteman years was commercial dreck. This album is laden down with dreadful vocals by the Modernaires -- how this group sounded so good with Glenn Miller and so bad with Whiteman is one of life's mysteries -- and Teagarden vainly trying to bring real swing to the so-called "swing wing" of Whiteman's band. On December 31, 1938 Teagarden started packing up his horn in the middle of a show and, when Whiteman asked him what was going on, Teagarden reminded him that his contract expired at the end of 1938, it was now January 1, 1939 and he wasn't going to stay with Whiteman even a minute longer than he was contractually obligated to. So Whiteman replaced him with Miff Mole, who'd been a major trombone star on the New York jazz scene between 1924 and Teagarden's arrival in 1928 -- and, ironically, Mole's actually featured better on this disc than Teagarden is, if only because at least some of his tracks don't feature the Modernaires.
