Mills Blue Rhythm Band, "Blue Rhythm Jam" 1947
This ferociously swinging chart was written by Van Alexander who led a couple of sessions under the MIlls Blue Rhythm Band name in 1947. It was really more of a tribute to the popular band of the same name from the '30s. The ensembles are tight, the solos are wailin'--what a fine way to kick off a beautiful springtime weekend. Enjoy!
