Tommy Dorsey Orchestra


Une soirée avec le Tommy Dorsey Orchestra

The trumpets and trombones stand for their chorus. The band leader readies the saxophones with a nod. And suddenly, for a few magical hours, the spirit of Tommy Dorsey returns to sweep us back to the crazy days and even crazier nights of Swing era. The Orchestra was put together in 1934 by brothers Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey and served as a launching pad for the meteoric careers of several of the talented young bucks of the day. So it was for drummer Buddie Rich and for one young singer by the name of Frank Sinatra who, in 1940, was only beginning to write a new page in the history of American pop music. The years pass, but the rhythms are eternal, which means that the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra can look forward to a long future as a powerful reminder of the years when the world danced to jazz.
