Jazz and jazz-influenced syncopated dance music was being performed in Australia within a year of the emergence of jazz as a definable musical genre in the United States. Until the 1950s the primary form of accompaniment at Australian public dances was jazz-based dance music, modeled on the leading white British and American jazz bands, and this style enjoyed wide popularity. Trombonist and bandleader Frank Coughlan (1904–1979) has been called "The Father of Australian Jazz". He had an illustrious career that lasted from the early 1920s to the 1970s. After the end of World War II Australian jazz began to diverge into two major strands: dixieland or 'traditional jazz' (early jazz) and modern styles like progressive swing, boogie-woogie and bop as exemplified by the music of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

The Great Band Era is a compilation album featuring Swing music from 1936-1945. Era

Coughlan was skillful in dance band music and his career started with Will James's dance band. Two years later, in 1924, he joined a sensational band called the Californians, which allowed him to travel more around Australia. As the first jazz group to come to Australia, the Californians provided him with his first experience with dance music and jazz. It was with this band that Coughlan developed most in skill and style and even made his introduction into the world of arranging.

Most of the numbers are headed by trumpeter Frank Johnson and feature his regular septet of the time, but there are also piano showcases for Frank Gow and Graham Coyle and one all-star gathering that finds Bob Barnard joining Frank Johnson on cornet and pianist Graeme Bell sitting in. The music overall on this 1998 CD (much of which came out previously on Swaggie LPs) is spirited but falls short of classic or the level of the earlier Graeme Bell recordings
