Description

Much of what we know of the personality of James Melvin Lunceford comes from the reminiscences of his musicians rather than from the man himself. Although solidly focused on entertainment, Lunceford's orchestra never sacrificed musical worth for easy applause. The skills of its arranging team were matched by the band's discipline and commitment to ensemble perfection. They impressed everyone who heard them, not least Count Basie, no mean bandleader himself. His assessment is worth repeating here: 'I think Jimmie Lunceford had one of the greatest swing bands that ever was. They'd start to rock and they'd just rock all night long ' Rhythm Is Our Business Stratosphere Unsophisticated Sue Four Or Five Times Bird Of Paradise I'll Take The South Hittin' The Bottle Oh Boy The Best Things In Life Are Free Muddy Water Hell's Bell's He Ain't Got Rhythm Slumming On Park Avenue For Dancers Only Posin' Margie Frisco Fog What Is This Thing Called Swing?
