Reviews summary

However, he truly shines when he writes about the sidemen and arrangers who, though they were less visible to the public, deserve equal credit for their contributions to the era

David bernhartpresident, big band academy of america in when swing was the thing, big band and swing era authority john tumpak not only celebrates such iconic heroes of the genres as benny goodman, glenn miller, and artie shaw, but also bandleaders such as kay kyser and horace heidt who have long since vanished into history, in addition to numerous singers, instrumentalists, and arrangers who all contributed mightily to the music's success

Tumpak tells how the big bands bolstered our nation's morale when most people were and out of woek having only a radio, a record player, and but a few pennies to go to the movies or ballrooms to listen, watch and dance to big bands that would provide them hours of pleasure that was so dearly needed in those difficult days

John tumpak's book is historically accurate, entertaining, and educational for readers of all ages
