Feat. Monette Moore


This recording was made in New York City on January 24th 1928 featuring Monette Moore vocals, Jabbo Smith and Leonard Davis trumpets, Charlie Irvis trombone, Elmer Harrell clarinet, Edgar Sampson clarinet & violin, Benny Carter alto sax, Charlie Johnson piano & leader, Bobby Johnson banjo, Cyrus St Clair tuba, and George Strafford drums.

*"You Ain't The One" was composed by Charlie Johnson and Arthur Porter.

On the 'second take' of the song to be recorded on this date, Monette and the assembly give a performance that surpasses their first. Among Benny Carter's first recorded arrangements, it is very advanced for the time. The modulation leading into Jabbo Smith's solo is particularly ingenious and harmonically adventurous.
