The Lady/China Boy
Eddie Condon's Jazz Concert
In 1944 Eddie Condon and his All Stars began their scheduled radio broadcasts on the Blue Network. Every Saturday afternoon they did half hour shows at 1.30 pm from the Town Hall in New York. The shows were transcribed by the Armed Forces Radio Service and broadcast around the world. This show won the first price in the GI popularity poll. The shows continued until around 1947. Some 45-50 shows were recorded with many different musicians featued weekly.
In this clip from show 7 we hear Eddie and the band with Bobby Hackett cornet, Pee Wee Russell clarinet,(one of the most popular musicians among the serviceman), Ernie Caceres baritone sax, Benny Morton trombone, Gene Schroeder piano, Sid Weiss bass and the incredible Gene Krupa on drums. The band plays "The Lady is in Love with You" and "China Boy" with an astounding drive created by drummer Gene Krupa.
