Red Promotes His Records
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is a compilation of "transcriptions" produced to be played on the radio on two different radio programs that promoted Brunswick "electric" records. As such they contain great period announcing for each cut. Most recordings are expanded recordings of specific releases or medleys of popular tunes of the day, some of which Nichols never actually released on commercial records. Liner notes are complete and its easy to pick out Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Pee Wee Russell and so forth as they take their hot solos.These recordings are probably as close as you can get today to the way hot dance music was played in person. For example "I May Be Wrong" follows the release closely, but at a slower tempo until the vocal, at which time they break out into extended jazz solos at a faster tempo than the release. A quality CD showcasing Red's style of hot dance music and Brunswick's record marketing circa 1929-30."
