Another overlooked band from the Swing Era. Powell left the Abe Lyman band to try his luck. One of his singers, Peggy Mann, was with the Larry Clinton band. Powell was fortunate to have clarinetist Irving Fazola in his group. Twenty-six tracks in this collection.
Highlights include: “Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio”, “Boogie War Dance”, “Tomaschefsky’s Laundry” and “4:15 Jump.”
