    This CD has 24 of the first 30 selections made by Will Bradley & His Orchestra. The trombonist's big band is best remembered for their recording of "Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar" and their other boogie-woogie-flavored numbers, but this disc actually stops two months before that hit record. During this period the group featured solos by Bradley, trumpeter Joe Weidman, and pianist Freddie Slack with vocals from drummer Ray McKinley and Carlotta Dale. The orchestra, a solid swing band, is heard in top form on "The Love Nest," "Memphis Blues," "Strange Cargo," "Jimtown Blues," and "Rhumboogie," plus the group's first hit, the eccentric "Celery Stalks at Midnight." ~ Scott Yanow
