This box provides a comprehensive and fascinating overview of the development of the arrangement in jazz. From early beginnings in the work of Jelly Roll Morton, arranging became a skill that was highly prized during the days of the big bands. This one's made to order for the true jazzophile. 90 tracks put together by 87 different arrangers. Pretty much every major big and mid-size band that recorded during the 1930s and 1940s is here, and then some! Includes a 68 page booklet to guide you through the history of this vastly underappreciated art. Amazing!!!
