Bert Firman's "Stampede"

by Mark Gabrish Conlan

Bert Firman's interesting cover of the Fletcher Henderson-Don Redman "Stampede":

Pretty much follows the original arrangement but with more ensemble work and fewer solos. Best parts are Bill Barton'a tenor sax (lighter-toned but still as infectious as Coleham Hawkins' solo on the original) and the ragtimey piano by either Cecil Norman or Bert's brother John.
