The Fabulous Swing Collection offers 19 classic swing hits from the likes of Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Fletcher Henderson, Charlie Barnet, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman, and Artie Shaw. There's nothing rare on the compilation, so it's not necessary for collectors, but it's not a bad sampler for casual listeners who want these hits on one disc. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
