Wingy Sings, Manone Plays: Great Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
Wingy Manone made these 24 good time small-band swing recordings for the Vocalion, Okeh, Banner, Perfect and Bluebird imprints between January 15, 1935 and July 7, 1936, cheerfully rasping the Tin Pan Alley lyrics, blowing his trumpet and egging the band on in the manner of Louis Armstrong or Fats Waller. The Waller connection is most evident in five titles that qualify as Waller covers and were certainly perceived as such in 1935 and 1936: "I Believe in Miracles," "Lulu's Back in Town," "West Wind," "I've Got My Fingers Crossed" and "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter." Perhaps the funniest and most endearing tune is "The Broken Record," a love song that ...

Wingy Manone made these 24 good time small-band swing recordings for the Vocalion, Okeh, Banner, Perfect and Bluebird imprints between January 15, 1935 and July 7, 1936, cheerfully rasping the Tin Pan Alley lyrics, blowing his trumpet and egging the band on in the manner of Louis Armstrong or Fats Waller.

Perhaps the funniest and most endearing tune is "The Broken Record," a love song that periodically sticks on one riff in imitation of a skipping 78 rpm phonograph record. (Carla Bley did her own bizarre update of this idea in 1978 when she made her entire ten-piece modern jazz ensemble skip like a 33-and-a-1/3 rpm record on "Musique Mecanique, Pt. 3"). Manone's bands were often peppered with players as brilliant and energetic as he was. The strongest examples on this collection are trombonists George Brunies and Jack Teagarden and reedmen Bud Freeman, Joe Marsala and Eddie Miller. If this little taste leaves you hankering for more Manone, seek out his complete works as presented on the Classics Chronological Series.
