Producer's Note
The Gene Krupa transcription sessions are transferred from the original acetates. Although every measure has been taken to create the cleanest possible transfers, there may be occasional flaws from the original discs in these masters that are audible on the CDs.
The Harry James sessions are taken from the original master tapes. Any sonic oddities, such as the brief left channel buzz flutter at the beginning of the tenor saxophone solo on "Kinda Like The Blues" (track 6-16), exist on the original tapes.
