The Twelve Clouds Of Joy-Andy Kirk with Mary Lou Williams

A great intro to another great swing band from Kansas City. It covers Kirk’s career from 1929-1940. There are also a lot of pianist Mary Lou William’s compositions. Twenty-five tracks including these highlights:

“Froggy Bottom”, “Walkin’ And Swingin'”, “Little Joe From Chicago”, “Dunkin’ A Doughnut” and “Floyd’s Guitar Blues.”

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
