Hello Jazz Cats.

Well last Months Tune was Really cool.

Anybody fancy nominating A tune for this month ?

I like this tune, "Hot Lips".

The attached live recording was made by my band "Dr. Jazz & the Jazzbugs" last month... as you will hear, my clarinet/sax buddy "Dr. Jazz" is one of the few guys that can play totally unaccompanied!

That's me on plectrum, doing my best to play in the style of my banjo hero, Sleepy Hall...

That's terrific Will. Just what I needed!! I guess I'll put up the Great multi-instrumentalist John Gill's Band John is playing TROMBONE on this album. I'm the one on Tenor Banjo. Eddy

Oh, the personal of JOHN GILL'S BAND:

Eddy Davis

Very nice, Eddie. What a lineup that band had!

I'm really surprised by the high level performance of that big band. It brings to mind the bands of N.O. in the 1920s. The secret is hidden in many factors: the arrangement, the sound of the instruments and, above all, the ostentatiously slow rhythm..for dance ... while this song is often played at high speed ... to get applause.
