Album Review

The Pennsylvania-based Boilermaker Jazz Band named their seventh album Give Me Your Telephone Number after a song recorded for the OKeh record label in February 1930 by trombonist J.C.

Give Me Your Telephone Number is more substantial and reveals the workings of an ensemble that has clearly attained new heights of collective excellence.
