The Dorsey Brothers: 1955 features 19 tracks from the Dorseys’ orchestra, recorded in Portland, Oregon in June 1955. It is perhaps the last great recording of these two swing masters, taken at the height of their all-too-brief joint revival from 1953 until their tragic deaths in 1956 and 1957.

Trombonist Tommy Dorsey (1905-1956) and saxophonist Jimmy Dorsey (1904-1957) were two of the biggest names of the American Big Band era. They rose to fame with their shared studio orchestra in 1928, a brand which they successfully transferred to live performances in 1934. However, an argument over tempo shortly after led the two to split up, with both forming their own successful orchestras.
