I'm pretty sure you know Sidney Bechet‘s wonderful version of Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me from the 1950s.
But now, I wanna jump back to late 1920s with you, when this very touching version was recorded.
Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me
Personnel: Jimmie Noone – clarinet, Joe Poston – alto sax, Earl Hines – piano, Bud Scott – banjo and guitar, Johnny Wells – drums.
I always get goosebumps when I listen to it. What about you?
Jimmie Noone (April 23, 1895 – April 19, 1944) is considered one of the best clarinetists of the Twenties and his style was a major influence on the Swing music of the Thirties and Forties.
I already wrote about him in an earlier Song of the Week. Check it out.
