Jimmie Rodgers'
Hot Dance with Tal


This side was produced in New York City on December 5th 1928 featuring Tal Henry violin & leader, Doc Dibert and Gordon Martin cornet, Chet Lincoln trombone, Walter Brown clarinet & alto sax, Francis Ellsworth clarinet & tenor sax, Walter Fellman clarinet, soprano, & alto sax, Paul Kenestrick piano, Harold Madsen guitar, Ivan Morris banjo, Chester Shaw bass brass, and Charlie Hudson drums.

*"My Little Old Home Down in New Orleans" was written by Jimmie Rodgers.

Composed by the famous American country singer/guitarist and songwriter Jimmie Rodgers, "The Singing Brakeman", this recording by "Tal Henry & His North Carolinians" transforms a simple folk ballad into a complex modern hot dance masterpiece.

Perfectly executed, at times Tal's arrangement for this number bears a strong similarly to "Darktown Strutters' Ball" published by Shelton Brooks in 1917.
