Artie Shaw: Begin the Beguine



Among the big band leaders of the 1930s and ‘40s, Artie Shaw was considered one of the most innovative and creative. This twenty-track collection is a wonderful sampling of his music. Delving more heavily into the more popular side of things, there’s still, along with Shaw’s melodious and virtuosic clarinet blowing, ample evidence of a jazz sensibility afoot. Standout tracks include “Back Bay Shuffle”, the quirky “Special Delivery Stomp” and, of course “Begin The Beguine”. Total Time: 65 minutes
