Robert Parker - The Swing Era Small Bands

More crazy goodness. All the big names are here, Django and Dorsey and many more plus a handful of obscurities. Whether you like what he does with these recordings or not, it is very cool to just be able to listen to them. Crackling stuff as Parker will say.

As usual, a pair of 1/2 hour shows. .
