In Big Band history, Tommy Dorsey’s Orchestra is recognized as one of the best all-around dance bands. It could swing with the best of them, and no other band could come close to Tommy’s when it came to playing ballads. Tommy Dorsey, “The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing,” was a master at creating warm, sentimental, and always musical moods – at superb dancing and listening tempos. Tommy sustained these moods through the arrangements of Paul Weston, Axel Stordahl, and Sy Oliver, and showcased singers who could project them brilliantly.
