Recensione album

Like Art Hodes and Irving Berlin, Jan Savitt was a Russian immigrant who flourished in the musical environment of North America during the first half of the 20th century. Savitt's dance band was one of the very best on the scene in the late '30s. Decades after his premature death at the age of 35 in 1948, several excellent collections appeared, allowing for a reappraisal of his accomplishments. Jasmine's Shuffle in Style is by far the finest Jan Savitt album in his entire posthumous discography. More than half of the tracks are instrumental, and the vocals (by Carlotta Dale, Allan DeWitt, and George "Bon Bon" Tunnell) are evenly distributed throughout.
