Eddie Miller, "Hum Drum" 1945

This track follows the familiar swing era formula made famous by Benny Goodman's "Sing, Sing, Sing (With A Swing)": pounding tom-toms, wailing minor key riffs, big crescendos.  Formula or not, this is an excellent piece of music with brisk energy and a dynamic arrangement.  The drummer is Nick Fatool.
