Woody Herman Quartet – Swing Low, Sweet Chariot (LP)

Working away in the Man Cave last night, I grabbed this 1962 LP at random and gave it a spin. What a gem!

It’s bluesy as hell, and swings like crazy. This group was really nailing it, song after song. The arrangements are beautiful, and the song selection rules. Herman has an amazing tone – I mean, the clarinet isn’t always the sexiest instrument. But here, it stands proud front and center and it’s glorious.

So very highly recommended.

      Haha it may look like I’m hardly working, because I am smiling as the tunes play. But things have piled up in there again and I actually AM working and organizing! True story!
