Shivery Stomp

It's cold and wet outside today, and getting colder with a chance for snow tomorrow. But Tram plays it hot. (from Wikipedia) Frankie (Tram) Trumbauer (30 May 1901–11 June 1956) was one of the leading jazz saxophonists of the 1920s and 1930s. Trumbauer is, more than anything, remembered for being the musical companion of Bix Beiderbecke, a companionship that produced some of the finest and most innovative jazz records of the late 1920s. He recruited Beiderbecke for Jean Goldkette's Victor Recording Orchestra, of which he became musical director. In the late 1920s he cut several popular sides with Beiderbecke, including the legendary "Singin' the Blues." After leaving Goldkette, he and Beiderbecke worked briefly for Adrian Rollini, then joined Paul Whiteman's band in 1927. He played with Whiteman for eight of the following nine years. This cd features his recordings from 1923-1929. Enjoy. +

Chester, this is fast becoming my favourite blog. Congratulations, and thanks for the wonderful music. I should just mention that I always convert your files (256 stereo) to 128 mono, which gives exactly the same sound fidelity (256 stereo is really 2 x 128) for half the size, and also resolves any balance issues. I would recommend, if not for your blog then at least for your personal collection, that you encode mono recordings as mono mp3s.

In any case, thanks again--I was looking around for this album only the other day, and here it is!

Thanks, Sam. I'm having a lot of fun listening to all of these again as I post, it's good to know that others appreciate the music as well. I have the next volume in this set of Tram but not the third, and will post it in the future. If there's something you're looking for, let me know and if I have it I'll post it.

I had read something similar about the brate just yesterday regarding these old mono recordings, and might do that for future posts. It should reduce the file size too, which I'm sure would be helpful to all.

This is a fabulous blog which lets me listen to many 78s that I have lost over the years. Thanks for really good copies too.

Hi Chester,
Following your post of the second Trumbauer CD, which I enjoyed very much, I was wondering if you could please reload the first in the series.
Thank you very much.

Chester Proudfoot said...

Ready to enjoy again.

Phil said...

Thank you very much for the reup.

My pleasure. I should take this chance to recommend buying copies of the various The Old Masters (TOM) cds, because the liner notes are exceptional (by various knowledgeable music authorities) and contain lots of information on the various sessions. Plus, the sound quality will be better. :-)
