I cant write a better review than Lee Harsfeld did. I purchased the cd because Sidney Eastwood Lane lived in our hometown for a time and for historical reasons I wanted a better understanding of his work. The sound quality of this work was impressive. I expected poor quality but was surprised. It was very good and therefore the focus was on the musicans alone. For anyone that enjoys the sounds of a bygone era this cd is a delite.

This outstanding CD features Paul Whiteman and his Concert Orchestra from 1927 and 1928 performing a number of mostly light, often jazz-influenced orchestral titles, including George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" (in its original, or near-original Ferde Grofe arrangement) and a version of "Concerto in F" rescored by Grofe. Other titles include Domenico Savino's Gershwinesque "A Study in Blue," a skillfully-written condensed concerto that anticipates any number of 1940s film scores; Matty Malneck's lightweight but memorable mood pieces "Midnight Reflections" and "Caprice Futuristic;" songwriter Rube Bloom's famous "Soliloquy," a gentle parody of early-20s pop music; and a marvelous Grofe orchestration of "Sea Burial," a Debussyesque miniature by Eastwood Lane, an American composer much admired by jazz great Bix Beiderbecke. The restored sound is remarkably free of surface/background noise, which results in very detailed, if slightly muffled, sound. While I personally prefer more natural-sounding reissues, it must be said that these sides have been very carefully and lovingly restored. Peter Dempsey's liner notes are detailed and informative, as are the track listings in the booklet. A typically high-class production from Naxos, the budget label that delights and amazes.
