Quite enjoyable...
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! Bobby Hackett and his orchestra are the stars of this short. They play some fast swing music that would have appealed to young adults back in the day. Even now, I think some teens might like this because it's amazingly fast and great music to jitterbug to--if anyone does this any more! Then, Les Lieber plays a penny whistle as Hackett's band accompanies--and once again, it's fast-paced and quite enjoyable. Following this is Nan Wynne singing "They Say"--which is much slower but very, very smooth. Then, Hackett and his group play a dixieland jazz sort of song--which is quite nice but a bit slower than usual for such music. Finally, Leith Stevens and his band play a peppy version of "Tea For Two". And, in the end, all of the singers and bands join in for the song. Overall, quite enjoyable.

By the way, I hope I spelled Lieber and Wynne's names correctly--they were not listed in the credits for this film on IMDb.
