Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra


On Green Dolphin Street

Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra
Loin L70063

From the back cover: Here's the late Jimmy Dorsey, his sax and clarinet, and his orchestra in some of his greatest record hits – a fitting memorial to his talents and one that is, as he would have wanted it, pleasure-filled for his fans.

The Dorsey named Jimmy was one of the true "greats" of American "pop" music – a fine instrumentalist, a knowing composer, a craftsmanly arranger, and above all, the creator of one of the most solid "big band"sounds around. Born in 1904 and passing's on in 1957, his career covered the growth of our music from Dixie through swing and onto progressive sounds. He conducted his career from band-stands of ball-rooms, hotels, theaters, radio, movies and television, excelling in each medium. From his own pen streamed such songs as "I'm Glad There Is You," "It's The Dreamer In Me," "Two Again," such instrumentals as "John Silver" and "Contrasts". In everything he did, Jimmy was a musician and a band-leader par excellence, one of the men who helped shape twentieth century American music.
