MG-20546: Like Swung / The Modernaires

[Front Cover] Label Type : black Mercury type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MS 20546A MS1    FF
SIDE-B MG 20546B MS1    FF



Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury SR-60220 (stereo).

with RCA Victor's inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

A famous Jazzy chorus group's nice album on Mercury.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

The Modernaires are very famous for their recordings with Glenn Miller Orchestra of the early 1940s (all of them are now classics).

In this album, maybe backed up with Pete Rugolo family, some arrangements are done by the Modernaires themselves. Still the arrangements are rather neat, but not so bad.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

7 out of 10
