“A Jazz Holiday” – Benny Goodman’s Boys With Jim And Glenn (1928)

The holidays may be over, but not if you’re a jazz fan!

Though the song is entitled, “A Jazz Holiday, I’m not quite sure where the “holiday” part kicks in.

Maybe it’s the use of the vibraphone as an early sound effect or the loose and casual arrangement of the song.
