Music aside (and there are many fine moments here)...some might have preferred the reissue complete sessions or at least a repackaging of this music in chronological order. The 36 selections are divided into four overlapping sections ("In the Beginning," "The Decca Sessions, Part l," "The Collaborations," "The Decca Sessions, Part 2") and range from sideman stints in the 1920s with clarinetist Johnny Dodds and Fletcher Henderson ("Shanghai Shuffle") to streaky big-band performances from the swing era, five vocal duets and commercial performances (including "Your Cheatin' Heart") from the 1950s...Some classics like "I Double Dare You" are unfortunately overlooked...the CD releases from the European Classics label will likely be more appealing to collectors.
