Overview

Ernie Carson can usually be counted on to contribute hot cornet solos that show off the influence of Wild Bill Davison. Most of his records are quite exciting and this date (with its mostly very obscure repertoire, including songs written by Australian trad players, some country tunes and oddities such as "You Can Do a Lot of Things at the Seaside" and "I'm Skipping Rope with a Rainbow") has plenty of potential. But why was banjoist Bill Rutan allowed to sing, not only as an occasional novelty but often? His voice is quite weak. Carson also takes a couple vocals which might have fared better as a diversion on another date. The band (Carson, trombonist Charlie Bornemann, Rick Fay on clarinet and soprano, pianist Butch Thompson, banjoist Rutan, Shorty Johnson on tuba and drummer Debbie Schreyer, who is normally a banjoist) is fine, but the endless "vocal refrains" sink the effort and make the overall results a bit corny.
