Can't wait to hear it. The last 2 cds were great. Once again sounds like you're picking a lot of excellent tunes.

Just ordered this, and the other CD 'Drummer Goes to Town'. 8) You'll have to tell me how "Drummer goes to Town" is. I have yet to find it for a price i wanted t...

Off the top of my head I'd go with "The Great Summit" With Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington playing together. Great stuff. The Great Summit is not only my favorite Ellington CD, it's probably my favorite CD, period. I can listen to Louis sing and play Duke's standards for hours on end. jerry Amen...

I have the brunswick/ vocalion louis Prima and Wingy Manone and love it. I'm really close to getting the bix/tram/teagarden set. I've almost ordered it twice now.

Drum solos to me are just as bad as bass solos. I don't mind them I small doses but after a phrase or 2 it gets old.

I really like the version of Shadrack on the "California Concerts" set. It's in a medley with When The Saints Go Marching In. Probably making it a little weird to play at a dance, but a great listen if nothing else.

Are there others?

-Playing lindy songs at a balboa event. Songs that do not feel like bal in any way shape or form. I'm sorry but "Hey Bop-a-Rebop" is not a bal song. "A Sm-o-o-o-o-th One" also feels a lot more like a good swingout than balboa. -Not being mindful of the volume on the floor. It's jarring when the volu...
