In 2008 Sony BMG reissued one of Les & Larry Elgart's more substantial efforts, Best of the Big Bands, Vol. 1. This parade of polished and carefully executed instrumentals draws heavily upon their 1964 Columbia LP, Command Performance!, resulting in a smorgasbord of hits by such influential composers and bandleaders as Charlie Barnet, Count Basie, Tiny Bradshaw, Les Brown, Jimmy Dorsey, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Ziggy Elman, Benny Goodman, Erskine Hawkins, Woody Herman, Glenn Miller, and Ray Noble. With Charles Albertine's tidy arrangements almost invariably anchored by big beefy trombones, this delightfully dated music can and will come in handy for conspicuously languid retro lounging and boffo theme parties. ---arwulf arwulf, AllMusic Review

Les and Larry Elgart led a very musical dance band in the 1950s, one of the few new big bands of the era. The emphasis was always on the melody rather than on jazz solos and this live CD of previously unreleased performances (recorded in stereo) is quite predictable. Their orchestra performs 14 standards with taste but no real originality, making these recordings of value strictly as background music for fox-trotters. ---Scott Yanow, AllMusic Review

 

Their sound is unique thanks to Charles Albertine their first chief arranger (a genius) Most noticible is the brass supported by the bass trombone (terrific) - no piano is used in this great big band. I heard that great band live in Montreal - in the fifties and sixties six of their singles releases were the openingn theme for different music broadcast. Theyb were very popular in Montreal - Les elgart band was booked for two weeks in a row at the Edge Water ballroom, he packed the house full every night - be sure I went 4 times to hear this fabulous band and Les Elgart was a Gentleman with the public. No mistake I bought back all their recordings on cd from different labels. I have `all their recording on cds. Hope this will be useful for fans of big band music. No mistake with the Elgarts. Best regards. ---A. Normandeau friom Longueuil, Québec, Canada, amazon.com
