Lindy Hopper's Delight

In case you are one of those people who cannot chew bubble gum and walk at the same time, here is the next collection in the Classics series. This set includes twenty-two tunes with Ella leading the band after Chick Webb's passing. While the last cd had several tunes sugary enough to induce a diabetic coma, this set seems to find Ella and the gang somewhat reigning in the pop with some nice covers of standards. And then there's the wubba dolly which suggests to me that while Ella was the nominal leader, perhaps she hadn't yet acquired the confidence to really take charge. But I'm just guessing. Enjoy +.

I just wanted to drop a big THANK YOU to you for your wonderful blog. I'm a lover of music of all sorts and have recently begun listening to music from the '30s (other than blues which I've been listening to for years). Your blog provides a great introduction for me. I especially liked the Ruth Etting and Annette Hanshaw recordings I heard. My wife described them as "music from Betty Boop cartoons", and also enjoyed hearing it (she's originally from Pakistan, so this is very different from what she normally listens to).
Cheers and smiles,
dcat, in the cornpatch... :-)

Glad you like it. You should check out Sita Sings the Blues at http://www.sitasingstheblues.com/. It's an animated film that uses Annette Hanshaw's music for the soundtrack.

Alas, the 1936 set that I already posted is the only one I have that is all Benny Carter.
