I'm not going to fault the performances themselves, though in places the sound itself isn't optimal. But though it's hard to criticize an album that ends with almost 9 minutes of a frenetic version of Sing, Sing, Sing, the fact is that this disc contains only ten tracks and around 37 minutes of music. Other Goodman sets are simply more value for money. Seek out these marvelous performances, but find them elsewhere.

This album consists two set-long airchecks from historically important engagements by the Count Basie and Coleman Hawkins orchestras at the Savoy Ballroom. The Basie band (1937) was fresh out of Kansas City and just becoming a national sensation. Hawkins (1940)was trying his hand as a big band leader after his hit with Body and Soul. Both performances are incredibly energetic and free-ranging, unleashed from the constraints of three minute studio recordings. The bands swing like there's no tomorrow, the soloists stretch out, and the audiences whoop and holler. Announcements between tunes are mildly amusing and add a sense of historical mood. I know of no other recordings that capture such a sheer sense of excitement. This is must-hear stuff if you want to know what the SWING era was all about.

This album is the ultimate late 1930's depression era swing music. Benny Goodman does the best recording ever of Louis Prima's 1936 Sing, Sing, Sing. Given today's economic realities this should become the Number #1 retro music album of our time.

I got this CD before swing became popular again and I think it's better than anything the "new swing" groups are putting out. I could play Sing Sing Sing over and over and never get tired of it! If you're a fan of the new swing groups, try the real thing - it's even better!
