Feat. George Mitchell


Recorded in Chicago on February 14th 1929 featuring Shirley Clay and George Mitchell cornet, William Franklin trombone, Toby Turner clarinet & alto sax, Cecil Irwin clarinet & tenor sax, Lester Boone clarinet, alto, & baritone sax, Earl Hines piano & vocals, Claude Roberts banjo & guitar, Hayes Alvis tuba, and Benny Washington drums.

*"Have You Ever Felt That Way?" was written by Spencer Williams and Agnes Castleton.

Earl Hines 'coons it up' taking on the role of an ignorant man of color for the enjoyment of record listeners with this questioning song of love. Though seemingly out of character for the intellectually gifted pianist one must remember that this type of somewhat racist comedy was an expectation of African American entertainers during the period.
