Jump, Jive, an’ Wail

The Collected Recordings Vol. 1

Brummagem

It was only a matter of time. A dozen versions of the swing standard are collected on one CD, from Louis Prima’s classic original to the Brian Setzer Orchestra’s recent Grammy-winning version. Along the way you get takes from the J-Street Jumpers, the Crescent City Maulers, and Daddy Warbucks and the Little Orphan Annies, along with never-released versions from the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Hipster Daddy-O and the Hand Grenades, and a few other daddies. New versions of this old classic are being recorded at the rate of one a week, according to the latest estimates; as such, Brummagem has already scheduled volumes 2-4 in this projected 24-volume set.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
