“Undecided” – John Kirby And His Onyx Club Boys (1938)

Decca; New York, October 28, 1938: John Kirby-sb-dir/Charlie Shavers-t/Buster Bailey-cl/Russell Procope-as/Billy Kyle-p-a/O’Neil Spencer-d.

Normally known for an extroverted trumpet style, here we hear Shavers in a more subdued mood in this self-composed song.

“Receiving the untitled composition the publishers wired Shavers for the name. Shavers’ brief wired response was “UNDECIDED,” which they mistakenly took to be the title.” –http://www.jazzstandards.com
