Swingin' in E Flat

From Allmusic.com, this fine big band was originally formed by drummer Willie Lynch as the Blue Rhythm Band in 1930 and as the Coconut Grove Orchestra, provided backup to Louis Armstrong on some records. In 1931, Irving Mills became their manager and the group was renamed the Mills Blue Rhythm Band. Lynch's departure later that year resulted in Baron Lee fronting the band until Lucky Millinder took over in 1934. They were also the Cotton Club backup band while Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington toured. Scans of the booklet are included. Enjoy. +
