From the back cover: With yearly surveys by The Billboard indicating that an average of 7,500 single records are released yearly, at least a quarter of which are pointed towards instrumentals for dancing, Dick Contino and Eddie Layton have chosen the best from the band libraries of names like Woody Herman (Woodchopper's Ball): Les Brown (Sentimental Journey): Duke Ellington (Perdido and Mood Indigo); Benny Goodman (A String Of Pearls); Charlie Barnet (Cherokee); and Glenn Miller (In The Mood).
