Feat. Wingy Mannone


This side was recorded in Chicago on January 24th 1930 featuring Wingy Mannone cornet, Frank Teschemacher clarinet, Bud Freeman tenor sax, Frank Melrose piano, Charles Melrose accordion, and George Wettling drums.

-It was one of only two takes made of the tune on this date.

*"Wailing Blues" was composed by Frank Melrose.

Coming in heavy on the cornet Wingy Mannone blows a powerful introduction greatly benefiting from his own expressive style. Lightning things up a bit with upon Mannone's completion the high register clarinet of Frank Teschemacher is featured. Wingy's back for the reintroduction of the main theme before Frank Teschemacher is joined by Bud Freeman to blow a chorus. Teschemacher finally gets his chance to let loose ("And How !!") with what can be described as an incredibly emotional red hot outburst. Serving to fatten it up, here comes Bud Freeman with a driving solo of his own fulfilling his role on the far more substantial tenor saxophone. Then Charlie Melrose introduces some lilting accordion leading up to this records' grand finish.
