A couple week ago I picked up a copy of a CD called Big Band Bash (1989) that features many essential tracks from the genre. Most of the songs I was already familiar with, but there were a handful that I wasn't and there were a couple that I wouldn't exactly classify as a part of that genre. Either way all of the songs are all great and needless to say I've been listening to it a lot since I got it. Below I've decided to share two of my favorites which I definitely consider to be essentials of the genre - "Sing, Sing, Sing" by Benny Goodman and His Orchestra (1937) and "Skyliner" by Charlie Barnet and His Orchestra (1944).
