Sax Man Brown - "Sax Symphonic Boogie"

Man this joint is jumpin'! If this song does not make you move then someone better check your pulse.
This is a classic cut and was released on both 45 and 78 RPM records in the fall of 1955 on Meteor. HERE is a website with the story of the label. I always loved the label design with it's astronomical and music note artwork.
Here's Bep "Sax Man" Brown and The Broomdusters,with Round House Boogie aka Sax Symphonic Boogie.

Richard Hayes - Summertime

The flip side to Hayes' "Junco Partner" is this rendition of the classic Porgy and Bess musical number, "Summertime", written by George Gershwin.
Hayes' dramatic vocal is backed by Eddie Sauter's orchestra in this early 1950s recording.
