More from the Daily Princetonian.

by Albert Haim

Daily Princetonian, Volume 59, Number 167, 12 January 1937

A wonderful platter but one with a narrower appeal is Victor's re-pressing of a waxing that Hoagy Carmichael cut with two all-star bunches six years ago. The immortal Bix's sixteen soulful measures after the vocal on "Georgia", and Teagarden's follow-up solo will send you from here to heaven and back. What's more, the boys settle any doubts about Georgia with a world-beating jam climax, dominated by Bix's impeccable artistry. Slapped up against this number is "Rocking Chair", featuring nice work by 'Bubber' Miley, a superb Ellingtonian who died the same year as Bix. Beiderbecke also shines on this plate along with Gene Krupa, Tommy Dorsey and Bud Freeman. You'll find Joe Venuti slipping in and out of both numbers. This is a "must" for serious discollectors.
