Product Description:

The first volume in Dee-Jay's prescient three-part anthology series featuring those kings of vocal rhythm, Just a-Rockin' & a-Jivin' is loaded with excellent performances. Urbane and refined or earthy and rhythmic, the Delta Rhythm Boys were quite dexterous and performed admirably with a wide variety of material: gospel updates ("Dry Bones," "Joshua Fit de Battle of Jericho"), jive novelties ("Gimme Some Skin," "No Pad to Be Had"), and their many versions of Duke Ellington standards ("Just a-Sittin' and a-Rockin'," "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me," "Take the "A" Train," and "Just Squeeze Me [But Don't Tease Me]"). One of the biggest highlights comes at the end with "A One-Sided Affair," a song that finds them paired with artists as agile and sparkling as themselves, the Les Paul Trio. ~ John Bush
