This upload was 27th in the Jazz chart .
An all-vinyl 'elements' edition that starts off slowly with a few solo piano numbers, then
branches out into trios, quartets, big bands and a few Dixieland ditties to close out the mix. The 3 live numbers (Goodman, Hamp, & Armstrong) are spliced together to sound as if the same crowd. This was two-thirds ripped using albums from my father's old collection (kept in protective V.R.P. sleeves all these years - the Ellington album purchased in 1953!), as well as a few off my own shelf.
But it's all LP (wink: stereophonic!) from the first tink of the piano to the abrupt ending of `South'. The Hampton track alone is worth the download, and the Satchmo number will make you smile...never mind the nostalgic snap, crackle & pop. Ah, vinyl!
