In big band history, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra is recognized as one of the best all-around dance bands. It could swing with the best of them, and no other band could come close to Tommy's when it came to playing ballads. Tommy Dorsey, "The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing", was a master at creating warm, sentimental, and always musical moods - at superb dancing and listening tempos. Tommy sustained these moods through the arrangements of the likes of Paul Weston, Axel Stordahl and Sy Oliver, and he showcased singers who could project them brilliantly.

One of those singers was "Ol' Blue Eyes." Frank Sinatra's career blossomed with Tommy Dorsey, and, with Sinatra's vocals, the band became more successful than ever. Frank had often admitted that listening to Tommy helped him develop his phrasing and breathing, along with his musical taste and knowledge. The music world may have lost both Dorsey and Sinatra, but their legacies of great music have transcended time. On April 24, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra will pay tribute to Sinatra and his music, in celebration of his centennial birthday.

Today, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra still represents explosive and swinging big band entertainment at its very best.
