Album Review

This second Larry Clinton Hep CD dates from 1938 with five numbers from 1939-1940. A definitive disc featuring Clinton's fine jazz-oriented dance band, this program includes Bea Wain's hit versions of "My Reverie," "Deep Purple," and "Martha," plus six of Clinton's riff instrumental "Studies" (which had begun with "A Study in Brown," recorded by Bunny Berigan): "Study in Blue," "A Study in Green," "Study in Red," "A Study in Scarlet," "Study in Surrealism," and "Study in Modernism."
