Song Of The Day – 10/6/11

Song Of The Day – “Well, All Right Then” by Jimmie Lunceford and his Orchestra

This causal strut from 1939 features elements of blues, swing, vaudeville and comedy…all hallmarks of this group who got their start at The Cotton Club in Harlem. The group featured trumpet great and arranger Sy Oliver and the saxophone on this track is courtesy of Willie Smith. Lunceford died while signing autographs in 1947.
