A Nice Assortment
25 June 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Leith Stevens leads his orchestra in a nice assortment of standards in a variety of musical styles, including Dixieland and swing. Mr. Stevens was a popular orchestra leader of the era who later became a musical director for an assortment of television shows and his facility with more than one style of music, so important for his later career, is much in evidence here.

Director Lloyd French is probably best remembered these days from his period at the Hal Roach studio, where he directed several Laurel and Hardy movies. He varies the standard composition of these musical shorts with some short cuts during the final number.
