Ralph Flanagan "Box Lunch" 1950

Ralph Flanagan was a successful bandleader who is remembered mostly for mimicking the "Glenn Miller sound." This track doesn't sound like Miller at all to me though--it's a good example of big band jazz morphing into R&B.  A live recording from the Hotel Statler in New York.  I think the tenor solo is by Steve Benoric.  Enjoy!
