Complete Standard Transcripts  (4 CD Set)

By:  Tommy Dorsey

Very Good  Condition. 

The Complete Standard Transcriptions is exactly that -- the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra's complete recordings for the Standard Transcriptions library on four discs, comprising nearly four hours of music. These studio recordings, made expressly for radio broadcast, have never before been commercially released in their entirety. Made in 1950-1952, Dorsey's Standard Transcriptions are late-career performances that find his orchestra working with swing and big-band dance music (vocal and instrumental) years after those styles had fallen out of favor, but key contributors like trumpeter Charlie Shavers and arranger Bill Finegan keep the quality high. The box set also preserves the original spoken intros designed to give the impression that Dorsey was playing live on the radio when the transcriptions were aired. With excellent sound quality and exactingly complete presentation, The Complete Standard Transcriptions is custom-made for collectors.
