The music on this 1997 CD was previously released as part of a couple of Jazz Archives LPs in the '70s. In mid 1944, the Teddy Wilson sextet consisted of the pianist, trumpeter Emmett Berry, trombonist Benny Morton, clarinetist Edmond Hall, bassist Slam Stewart and drummer Sid Catlett. These 15 selections (recorded as radio transcriptions with many of the performances clocking in between four and five minutes) are high quality, late period swing with no hints of bebop. Berry, in particular, is in top form (it is a pity that no one would ever think of having him lead his own session), Hall really came into his own during this era and the group alternates tight ensembles with spontaneous solos. Most of the tunes performed are swing standards, other than three Wilson originals: "A Touch of Boogie Woogie," "B-Flat Swing" and "You're My Favorite Memory." Enjoyable music.
