Picks and Pans Review: Sentimental Swing: the Music of Tommy Dorsey
PBS (Sat., Aug. 15, 9 p.m. ET)
Hey, Dad, set your VCR, turn on your TV and sit back 'cause I have good news for you: Big bands are back...at least for a night. The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra—it's still around even if Tommy isn't—gets together with Mel Tormé, Jack Jones, Buddy Rich and Maureen McGovern (you wouldn't know her—she's just a kid), and they play the kinds of tunes you used to wish I'd play instead of the Electric Prune: Getting Sentimental Over You, Without a Song, The Lady Is a Tramp, Blue Skies, Whatcha Know Joe. With a good golf game on the tube and this special, you'll have one great Saturday.
