Rough-and-tumble, but swings like hell!
2012年3月23日 - (Amazon.com)
Okay, these are not the most polished performances (and the tests prove that the musicians were not always certain of the chord structure of some of the tunes) and yes, they do tend to get repetitive when listened to in one sitting; but boy, do these cats swing! By chance I listened to a very old tape recording I had made in my teens of a nostalgic radio programme and it contained just one item of this band which swung like hell. Glad that Jazz Oracle had issued all existing recordings in 2002 and that there are still a few copies to be had. But little is known about this recording band (they only did two sessions for Decca, one with old warhorses like Tiger Rag, Limehouse Blues, High Society, Farewell Blues and the like, and the second with pop tunes of the day, such as Chasing Shadows, Lulu's Back in Town and In the Middle of a Kiss), save for the trumpeter (Taft Jordan), guitar, bass and washboard. There is uncertainty about the booting tenorist, the pianist and altoist. No matter; the way they tear into the numbers, the pure joy that splashes out of the loudspeakers more than compensates for solistic anonymity (Jordan is an Armstrong disciple if there ever was one) any lack of refinement or sedater tempos. When you sample them a few at a time, you will want to return to the CD regularly. Standards of production (audio quality, booklet etc.) are of the highest order, as always with this label. Make sure not to miss this!
