The big band of Cyril Stapleton is heard to superb effect in this Volcalion release, which compiles two of his Decca albums from the late 1950s and early ’60s. Both originally recorded for the American market and issued in the UK on Decca’s Ace of Clubs subsidiary, The All-Time Big Band Hits features solos by tenor saxophonist Don Rendell and trumpeter Bert Courtley on many of the tracks. Cyril leads his band through exciting treatments of several staples of the swing era including Erskine Hawkins’s Tuxedo Junction, Charlie Barnet’s Skyliner, Sy Oliver’s Opus 1, Basie’s One O’Clock Jump and the Goodman classic Stompin’ at the Savoy. From two years later is Top Pop Instrumental Hits, featuring arrangements by Ralph Dollimore and Reg Owen, the latter a founder member of the Ted Heath Orchestra. Indeed, Stapleton’s band covers Manhattan Spiritual, which provided Reg’s own orchestra with a big hit in 1959. The remaining tracks, with the exception of the Theme from ‘A Summer Place’, are a varied selection of British and American chart hits from the 1950s, all arranged and performed in the inimitable Stapleton manner. They include Swingin’ Shepherd Blues, Mack the Knife, Moonglow and Theme from ‘Picnic’, Canadian Sunset and more.
