Slippin' Around: Miff Mole, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow

Mole's four numbers backing stage singer Sophie Tucker who sounds pretty strong in 1927, four cuts with Red & Miff's Stompers, two by the Red Nichols Orchestra, and a pair of test pressings from a Mole session in 1930 with trumpeter Phil Napoleon wrap up this intriguing set. Highlights include adventurous versions of "Hurricane," "Delirium," "Davenport Blues," "Imagination," and "Feeling No Pain."
