How'm I Doin'?

Englishman Nat Gonella has always been somewhat overlooked in the U.S. since his records have long been rare, but he was one of the best trumpeters of the 1930s, and an enjoyable singer too. He recorded extensively with his Georgians during the swing era, including the 20 titles included on this superior (and generous) British LP. PerformingSee more details below

Overview

Englishman Nat Gonella has always been somewhat overlooked in the U.S. since his records have long been rare, but he was one of the best trumpeters of the 1930s, and an enjoyable singer too. He recorded extensively with his Georgians during the swing era, including the 20 titles included on this superior (and generous) British LP. Performing hot standards along with a couple of originals, Gonella is heard in peak form on such tunes as "How'm I Doin'," "Fan It," "The Music Goes Round and Round," "Someone Stole Gabriel's Horn" and "Lady Be Good." No pre-bop collection is complete without at least a couple of Nat Gonella sets; he is well worth discovering.
