Overview

Violinist Stuff Smith is heard in top form on this set of radio transcriptions from 1943, a time when a musicians strike kept Smith and others off records. Joined by pianist Jimmy Jones (who has plenty of solo space) and bassist John Levy, Smith performs ten songs and, in addition to the accepted versions, there are four alternate takes and three brief incomplete versions. Highlights include "Humoresque," three versions of "Minuet in Swing" and a pair of hot renditions of "Bugle Call Rag." Throughout Stuff Smith is heard in prime form, showing how hard a violin can be swung.
