Terrific stuff all from transcriptions. Much better than much of his Decca junk from the period. A few ballads, a few novelties and a few traditional aka boring songs, otherwise, all instrumental!

Wonder if this is on Spotify?

Great stuff, ordered! (It's not on Spotify, although some of the individual tracks are available.)

1.) Alright!!!!
2.) Oh, no! I'll dig what they have.

I was surprised how good some of the charts were. Fred Norman, who also arranged a lot for Krupa, did stuff for JT. And the playing I heard was also excellent.

My copy arrived last week, and it was ... disappointing, as CD2 was a duplicate of CD1 (although it was labelled correctly)

Hey ho. Now I have to return it....
