Wonderful Sounds of a Bygone Era
Those who are regular listeners of APR's "Prairie Home Companion" will recognise Vince Giordano's name from the show's visits to NYC. This recording may hold a few of those performances, but even if it doesn't, it has a wonderful grip on the music of this bygone era of American popular music. The recordings present a cross-section of the kind of "speak-easy" jazz often left behind in serious discussions of music from the early 20th Century. The performances and arrangements are well done and will get your foot tapping. You will be glad that they have kept this kind of music alive.
