C Jam Blues for a Friday


Nuthin’ a-tall to do with Orthodoxy, but:

With a son who plays trombone, I’m very familiar with “C Jam Blues” — perhaps you are too — but here’s a video of Duke Ellington & Crew back in 1942.

Check out Sonny Greer (around the 2:18 mark); you’ll be glad you did.

Other artists included in the video: Barney Bigard, Ray Nance, Joe ‘Tricky Sam’ Nanton, Rex Stewart, and Ben Webster.
