The 20 tracks on this album are vivid and spectacular examples of his "undercover" work over the two decades that encompass the Second World war. There is an abundance of stars and some wonderful music in a variety of styles including some high paces Dixieland, recorded years before the traditional jazz revival got underway.
Sidemen incluce Stephane Grappelli, George Chisholm, Kenny Baker, Johnny Best, George Shearing, Sam Donahue, Jimmy and Marian McPartland.
