I'd take Man from Mars, Carioca and the soundie version of Lady be good over of the stuff Wettling played on. Rich - especially before 1945 - is rippin'.

Or "Dark Eyes" as played by any number of swnig and gyspy players. Django, T. Dorsey, etc. I've been told it's basically the gypsy version of a anthem

Easy - the 1941 Goodman version with solos from Benny, Charlie Christian and Cootie, but otherwise it's the Fletcher arrangement. The Basie and Coleman/Django one's are also great. I also dig the 1944 Cootie Williams version, the live Goodman sextet version in Db, and the later Goodman sextet versio...

I remember distinctly dancing to some band years ago, and hearing people complain when they would follow the hot numbers with a total slow down. I remember it really killing the energy. I try not to over-shock crowds when I play by following hot tunes with really slow tunes, even though it seems lik...

I was talking about transcribing 20's, 30's and 40's stuff properly, which is a seperate art in itself. Guys who can do "Take-downs" are dime-a-dozen, but guys who properly understand those styles are a lot harder to find. And guys who can write their own arrangements that don't sound totally anachr...

Dean Mora does some transcribing. I've been using a guy in NY named Harvey Tibbs. He played trombone with us at Lincoln Center. So far he's done "Keep on Jumping," " Jamaica Jam," "Harlem Jump," "Blow Top", and "All the Cats Join In." He's pretty reasonable. [Edit] I realized you meant commission, a...

Favorite Version of "Bugle Call Rag"?

While the live Goodman version from "On the Air 1937-1938" used to be my favorite until I heard the Metronome All Stars version. That version is sooooo tight. Especially the trumpet hits on the out chorus - so clean and tight and driving. I also really love the JATP 1944 version, but its really only...

Without getting too technical, the chord changes are real bebop friendly, and I've noticed a lot musicians, who otherwise play good swing stuff, will sort of default to bebop-y style when playing this tune. They'll start running endless lines, not playing riffs or rhythmically. (For those who know, ...
