Dixieland Dance Date - Red Nichols


Satan Takes A Holiday

Dixieland Dance Date
Red Nichols And The Five Pennies
Produced by Bill Miller
Capitol Records  T1297

From the back cover: The group that performs them here so admirably includes versatile Bobby Hammack at the piano, Bill Wood on clarinet, drummerman Rollie Culver, Pete Beilmann, Sr., playing those good things on trombone, and the incomparable Joe Rushton, Jr., whose mighty bass sax sounds the full, reedy bottom notes that have become a Red Nichols trademark.

From Billboard - February 8, 1960: A couple of traditional Dixieland offerings are included, plus standards like "September Song" and "My Funny Valentine." The latter type receive the benefit of delicate and imaginative arrangements and are much more effective than the quasi-Dixieland. Nichols' old following plus new fans derived from his recent film biography can make this a profitable item.
