Jelly Roll Morton’s SHOE SHINER’S DRAG:
JADA — taken at the kind of tempo you don’t hear often enough these days. Soaring and sweet and rocking.
We were sent. No question about it.
Your homework: find the computer in your home that has the best speakers and the largest monitor, turn up the sound, make sure the picture is “full-screen,” gather the family and pets . . . show ’em what Swing’s about.
May your happiness increase.
