Sweet Georgia Brown - Red Nichols, B.G. & Big Tea in NYC.

Okay, it's not one of my very few favorites, but it is my favorite version of a song to the point that it's the only version I particularly like of this song. Rocks my socks off.

"Toledo Shuffle" by Freddie Jenkins' Harlem Seven, from Sounds of Harlem, Vol. 1. I've discovered that I really enjoy the guitar solos from way back. They remind me of so many things American.

"You're Just an Old Antidisestablishmentarianismist" by Ellington, from Stars of the Apollo. Silly, silly, silly. Can't really play it more than once in two blue moons, but I still enjoy it.

Lavern Baker - On Revival Day

A classic, I know, but I only got the CD recently and I love her brassy voice.

That is a tight song. I have the Charley Barnet version (which is entitled "Emperor Jones").
