Hot Platter

Today I offer my trumpeter and bandleader Erskine Hawkins, composer of "Tuxedo Junction" (his version made it to #7 nationally, while it went to #1 with Glenn Miller's version). His band was so popular that he was able to keep it together through 1953, an amazing feat considering that many bands fell apart at the end of World War II. This record includes the first formal recordings of Coleman Hawkins and his Orchestra, though he had cut some sides as early as 1936. Enjoy. +

Thanks for the Erskine Hawkins music. Yet another great collection of music you are posting.

Off topic, but do you perhaps have any piano recordings by Steve Race who has just passed away?

Sorry, Mel. I have nothing of his.
