Product Description

Jimmy & Tommy Dorsey - Swingin' In Hollywood

Amazon.com

Rhino has lovingly created this compilation of the Dorsey brothers' film music, and the resulting 21 tracks all make for a fun listen of some of the finest musical work the siblings performed. Tunes from Jimmy's I Dood It ("Star Eyes," "So Long, Sarah Jane") and Lost in a Harem ("Noche de Ronda," "I Know It's Wrong") and Tommy's Thrill of a Romance ("Battle of the Balcony Jive," "The Guy with the Slide Trombone") are all highlights. The pair's melding of Dixie and pop idioms is near perfect. And though it's an album of contrasts--Jimmy's ensemble specialized in playing fast and swinging hard, while Tommy's went for mood and tone--all of the tunes originate from the early '40s, a great vintage when both Dorseys were in their prime, working for MGM. Nostalgia abounds. --Jason Verlinde
