For the most part I agree with Reuben. All tracks except for 3 and 10 have the riding high-hat which I find somewhat annoying, especially when the cymbals are loud enough to compete with the horns -- i think it's the continuous repetition of the sound that is grating. (and even the Ellington stuff from Newport has a lot of high-hat ride, which is too bad).
I'd DJ clip 3 more than once. I find it happy and with big energy, it's almost corny, but it would work well at times.
Too bad clip 8 has too much high hat ride, I like the bass solo, energy and the softer horn arrangements.
Clip 10 had me looking for Desi Arnez
There is too much latin/swing that is really good which you can't play that often, so I wouldn't waste a slot on this clip.
Clip 2 has the highest cheese factor for me - there is something trite in the melody in addition to the high hat ride.
Any drummers in the crowd? The high hat ride still continues through modern jazz, but it gets toned down in smaller combos. You never hear it in 30's and 40's big band tracks --- where did it come from?
Hope this helps Jerry --- how do you feel about Chick Webb? His drumming really makes you want to dance.
There is a lot of Jimmie Lunceford that qualifies as corny IMHO, but it's still fun to dance to - such as "On the beach in Bali-bali" - happy happy song, but it has great rhythm.
