Joe Venuti & His Blue Four
Feat. Frankie Trumbauer
This recording was made in New York City on October 28th 1929 featuring Joe Venuti violin, Eddie Lang guitar, Frankie Trumbauer bassoon & c-melody sax, and Lennie Hayton piano.
*"Runnin' Ragged" aka ("Bamboozlin' The Basson") was composed by Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Lennie Hayton, and Frank Trumbauer.
This classic recording from "Venuti & Lang" is made complete with the addition of Frankie Trumbauer's saxophone and especially his bassoon producing original "on-the-spot" solo work composed at the session.
It is for this reason that all who were present: Lennie Hayton, Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, and Frankie Trumbauer appear as its credited authors.
A very brief intro ending with a low note from Trumbauer's bassoon gives way to the sudden and speedy delivery of stringed bliss from Joe Venuti and his legendary partner Eddie Lang.
As the title implies this number takes on a rather frantic feel facilitated through the playing of the famous stringed duo. -Then this record is split up a bit by fresh solo breaks from Trumbauer and Hayton.
