Feat. George Thomas & Dave Wilborn


Recorded in Chicago on November 23th 1928 featuring John Nesbitt and Langston Curl trumpets, Claude Jones trombone, Jimmy Dudley or Joe Moxley clarinet & alto sax, Don Redman clarinet, alto, baritone sax, director, & arranger, George Thomas clarinet, tenor sax, & vocals, Prince Robinson clarinet & tenor sax, Todd Rhodes piano & celeste, Dave Wilborn banjo, guitar, & vocals, Ralph Escudero tuba, and Cuba Austin drums.

*"It's Tight Like That" was written by Thomas A. Dorsey and Hudson Whittaker.

Authors Tampa Red and Georgia Tom Dorsey (aka Hudson Whittaker and Thomas A. Dorsey) first recorded this song as a vocal duo accompanying themselves with guitar and piano on November 6th 1928. The scat and call and response vocalizations of George Thomas and Dave Wilborn heard here serve well to heighten this swingin' arrangement of the song conceived by Redman.
