Weekend Extra: Easter Parade

Here’s a cheery version of Irving Berlin’s classic holiday song. It’s by Jimmie Lunceford’s band, recorded in 1939. The vocal and exuberant trombone solo are by Trummy Young. Have patience, please. It takes the Garrard disc jockey a while to get it cued up, giving you nearly 15 seconds to read the record label.

Happy Easter.

    Aw—I loved it. Wonderful sound. If I were a movie-maker, I’d figure out how to use this as an opening.
