Let's Dance

A Tribute To The Great American Dance Bands

Only a musician with Harry Goldson's musical resumé... someone who was part of that phenomenon we now refer to as the Big Band Era... could ever have made a recording as engaging and timeless as Let's Dance, Harry's ninth CD.

Let's Dance is an album to be savored for as long as there is a desire to experience music that exudes an ambience of romance and elegance... the kind of music that creates a mood that will make you-want-to-dance to its smooth ballads and swinging jazz classics... or to simply sit back and enjoy the mellow sounds and the fresh presentations of the magnificent masterpieces of American song that are featured throughout the album.
