Perhaps the others can do better but I'm pulling blanks on most of them. Here's what I recognise:

3. Charlie Barnet - Wild Mob of the Fish Pond - 1940
8. Big Chief De Sota - Fletcher Henderson
9. Sounds like Sugar Foot Stomp but I can't recognise the arrangement or the band.

I can quickly add a couple.

4) Six Appeal - Benny Goodman Sextet
7 / 11) Blackstick - but I don't know the version - I only have Sidney Bechet renditions. With a snippet of Slim Gaillard's Communications at the beginning.

[EDIT] Found the Blackstick version - it's by an outfit called 'Renè Franc & Bootleggers'

If I had to guess, #9 is Benny Goodman. I don't have that recording but a similar one on the Goodman Quadromania set. The clarinet was the clue that I followed.

I'd guess that's Benny Goodman too - it's the same arrangement as two other Goodman recordings of this song that I know of. But that's not Harry James on trumpet.

You guys are such awesome nerds. I never have a clue about these IDs. And it's such a nice surprise when you name them!
