Thou Swell

by Artie Shaw & His OrchestraArtie Shaw & His Orchestra


1 New & Used Starting at $37.29


A '92 CD reissue of pre-hit Shaw material with his combo, recorded in 1936 and 1937. His clarinet solos were just as masterful and accomplished in this period as in the 1938-1945 era, but there were no compositions that caught the audience's attention, nor were his vocalists as strong as those that came later.
