Auf die Größe kommts an: Je größer die Band, desto besser der Sound. Das gilt zumindest für die stets größer werdenden Venues in den 1920er Jahren, als der Swing an Popularität gewann. Aber wie kann man so gewaltige Bands rechtfertigen, in Zeiten, in denen man durch Verstärkung auch mit kleinen Combos großen Sound erzeugen kann? Die Antwort findet sich in diesen 20 seltenen und digital aufgearbeiteten Alben, von einigen der besten Big Bands der 1950er Jahre. Von Klassikern von Count Basie oder Duke Ellington und deren Neuinterpretationen durch "Newcomer", wie Clark Terry oder Dizzy Gillespie, über die coolen Sounds a la Marty Paich, Stan Kenton oder Pete Rugolo, bis hin zu erweiterten Arrangements von Gil Evans, Bill Holman oder George Russell. Vielfalt klang noch nie so gut- und so groß.
