Freddie Slack And His Orchestra
Woody Herman And His Orchestra
These two instrumentals feature legendary players plus great jazz band leaders of the 1940s who happened to be born in my neck of the woods, Wisconsin.
Freddie Slack's "Riffette" from 1943 features an electric guitar solo by blues legend T-Bone Walker.
Woody Herman's "Sabre Dance" from 1948 is highlighted by a tenor sax solo by jazz great Stan Getz.
