    If you want to hear the finest music of the period, big bands isn't where you will find it. Small group jazz is where the musicians really show what they could do; there was much more freedom and license to improvise, which is what jazz is really about.

    For the absolute benchmark of the small groups, you have to go to the Teddy Wilson 1935-1938 Brunswick recordings.

    Nice! very nice Chas!:eusa_clap

    The one exception for me is the rendition of "What A Little Moonlight Can Do" (which you have there with Teddy Wilson & His Orchestra)- I personally prefer the sound and arragnment of Harry Roy for example - - it goes down so smoothly, so easy, so nicely.... in my opinion?
    But them. I like pop mainstream Dance Band sound 1930s :D

    Tal Henry And His North Carolinians was one of hundreds of bands that enjoyed moderate success during the 1920s which have been mostly forgotten for decades. While this recording is not especially jazzy, I think it has a rather haunting quality about it. ( Dismuke radio)

    And I agree. :)

    Some Little Someone (1928)

    You can't get into 30s jazz without enjoying Hylton and Noble.

    Without a doubt, one of my favourite Noble tracks: "It's All Forgotten Now":
