Having Wonderful Time

The Clambake Seven was a small Dixieland-oriented group taken out of Tommy Dorsey's big band. Its main period was between 1935 and 1939, although the leader-trombonist occasionally revived the concept in later years. This 16-song LP and has many of the group's finest recordings, all but 1946's "Don't Be a Baby, Baby" dating from 1935-1940. With such hot soloists as trumpeters Sterling Bose, Max Kaminsky, Pee Wee Erwin, and Yank Lawson, clarinetists Joe Dixon and Johnny Mince, tenor saxophonist Bud Freeman and Dorsey, plus many vocals by Edythe Wright, the Clambake Seven can be heard at their best on this program highlighted by "The Music Goes 'Round and 'Round," "At the Codfish Ball," and "When the Midnight Choo-Choo Leaves for Alabam'."
