Despite Dorsey being a big name, I felt this film lacked energy or excitement.
27 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a short from Vitaphone and it can be found on the "Warner Brothers Big Band, Jazz & Swing" DVD collection. This set consists of six DVDs and almost 11 hours of shorts! "Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra" is a very typical sort of short. It consists of Jimmy Dorsey and his band playing a few tunes. And apart from a guitarist wanting to do a number, it's all VERY conventional. It's simply music and no story or hook to excite the viewer. And, I know opinions will differ, but I found this music amazingly dull and uneventful. Now I must admit that I am not a huge fan of big band, but even for this sort the film is pretty limp. The short lacks humor and especially energy. As a result, it's a below average film compared the most of the rest of the set.

Now I know that Jimmy Dorsey is quite famous and the brother of the even more famous Tommy Dorsey. This doesn't change the fact that this one just never seemed that special--just another band strutting their stuff, so to speak.
