Jerry Jerome is fondly remembered as the jazz tenorman in the first Glenn Miller orchestra and the top-of-the-line big bands of Red Norvo, Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw until he left the big bands in 1941 to pursue studio work and a succe4d jingles business.

The 'Something Old" part of this set brings together a batch of rarities made by Jerry between 1939 and the early 69's, providing a generous sampling of Jerry's marvelous Lester Young-inspired tenor saxophone, contributions from such stellar friends and associates as Charlie Christian. Teddy Wilson Charlie Shavers, Yank Lawson Bobby Hackett, Red Allen and Tyree Glenn. and Jerry's's spoken introductions making this a unique autobio-graphical document.

The "Something New" CD was recorded in 1996 with a first-rate supporting cast of Randy Sandke, George Masso, Dick Hyman. Bucky Pizzarelli, Bob Haggan and Joe Ascione and reveals that Jerry is playing better than ever. Together the two CD's fonn a musical portrait of a splendid musician who has never lost his enthusiasm for_iazz and has never stopped minging -Producer's note.
