It captures the glamour & excitement of their music, & chronicles the trials & difficulties of the musicians' lives on the road, traveling all over America. It brings alive those years when band leaders & featured soloists were the idols of their day, playing rich & powerful sounds that are as inspiring on record today as when they brought audiences to their feet in live performance.
