I've always liked Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang (Salvatore Masseo) and both were influential jazzers. Joe was the jazz violinist of his time and Eddie Lang was the man who chased the banjo out of jazz with his driving rhythms and extended chords. On some of their sessions they added Frank Signorelli on piano and Adrian Rollini on bass saxophone.
Anyway, Rollini was in several bands starting in the early 1920s and they all played jazz that you could dance to - the Charleston beat and variations were common - and popular. Even though the recordings are over 90 years old, it doesn't sound dated and is very happy music. It's near impossible to be depressed while listening to the University Six for example. Rollini invented the Hot Fountain Pen, which was like a miniature clarinet, and mastered the Goofus which is like a melodica shaped like an alto sax and sounds like a wheezy accordian.
On bass sax, Rollini alternates between soloing and playing the instrument like a tuba to get bass runs and fills.

(Venuti and Lang came before Django and Grapelli and were an influence on them.)

Happy music, good musicians, and I had not heard it before and am a fan.

The Goofus?? :D

Post is much too long, Father, won't even try to read it, in my actual disgraceful condition. Image

I once read Frank Zappa said the Shaggs were better than Captain Beefheart. He might even have been right, happenchance, but what do Wops know?

If it was in my powers, i'd revoke his idiot son Sicilian citizenship :huh:

That's right - make FZ use the Greek half of his heritage only.

In my house, no one tops Captain Beefheart except maybe Thelonious Monk; but, since they plied different waters, it's a decision that doesn't have to be made :)

Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.

The first single I ever bought was not Destination Venus by The Rezillos as I have always maintained but it was 'Singing In The Rain' by Sheila B Devotion which I came across in a bargain basket in Boots on Princes Street in Edinburgh on a day visit. I had no idea what it was, but it was a 7" single and my first.

I have lost it. Or maybe binned it when I found out about The Rezillos and The Skids, but I recently bought it on 12" and also 'Spacer' 7" which is great!

I have been researching this. It's worth noting that the act was not a solo performer, but a band and the band name was 'Sheila & B. Devotion', not 'Sheila B. Devotion'. There was slight confusion, essentially, the US market knew the act as "Sheila & B. Devotion", while Canada, Australia, the UK, Ireland and the European markets stuck with the name Sheila B. Devotion. In 1979, the name was officially changed to Sheila & B. Devotion across all markets internationally.

There was another official name for the band, 'Sheila & The Black Devotion', referring to her backing group of sambo dancers. :)
