After Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw was the premiere swing clarinetist, and his fine compositions, sweet tone, and mastery of the instrument's high register hold him in good stead against "the King of Swing." THE CENTENNIAL COLLECTION brings together 20 Shaw selections, eight of which are taken from late-1930s and early-'40s
