Ray Anthony Concert


Slaughter On Tenth Avenue

Ray Anthony Concert
Capitol Records T406

From the back cover: The story of Ray Anthony's phenomenal rise to the position of number one bandleader in the country is almost as well known as his vibrant and swinging style. It's the story of his first professional engagement with Al Donahue followed by Jimmy Dorsey; of his stint with Glenn Miller, which undoubtedly had a tremendous influence on the young trumpeter; and of the period during World War II when Ray organized his own band in the navy and toured the entire Pacific; and lastly, but most importantly, of his organizing a peacetime counterpart to his naval band which has come to be, in the last few years, virtually an American institution.
