Ted Heath and His Music Swing Is King, Volume 1 and 2 MP3/Flac

Always considered to be the very best of the British Big Band leaders, Ted Heath was able to survive the constant changing of tastes throughout his career, and his enduring appeal has won him a place at the forefront of 20th century British Music history. He formed his band at a time when Big Band music’s popularity was waning, but was able to buck this trend thanks to his ability to pick the best musicians in England, many of whom went on to lead their own bands, and popular vocalists like Denis Lotis and Lita Roza. As a result of this he managed to remain popular alongside the developing Rock and Roll and later the Beat groups.

You will enjoy having this if you're a fan of big band, swing and the band stylings of the fabulous '30s and '40s, or Ted Heath separately or in combination.
