Les Elgart On Tour


Dating all the way back to 1959, this sheaf of prime Elgart tunes demonstrates the bounce, cleanliness and smoothness that make the band virtually irresistible. At least that's what the liner notes say, and the chic air hostesses on the front cover seem to be in full agreement.

Les Elgart's orchestra trod the middle ground between the sophisticated swing of Stan Kenton and Pete Rugulo, and the big band pops of Enoch light and co. The blend of smooth understated swing and bouncy dance tunes does indeed make good listening, and will appeal to jazzers and loungers alike.
