Tis good, reading Barry McCanna's informative critique.
These are not classic jazz recordings; most of those were laid down before the onset of the Depression, when recording companies struggling to survive largely enforced a commercial approach. What is remarkable is how veterans like the Dorsey brothers, Bunny Berigan, Manny Klein, Benny Goodman, and Joe Venuti, met those requirements but still managed to transmute the product of Tin Pan Alley into performances that have stood the test of time and are still sought after by discriminating collectors.
The 24-page illustrated liner note has a necessarily condensed account of Rollini's career, a commentary on the music, and a complete discography.
