I love all types of music and I have gotten into some 1920's stuff which even nearly 100 years old still have apt lyrics and happy go lucky beats.

Jack Hylton - Sam Browne - You're The Cream In My Coffee 1928



Ray Miller & His Orch. - Ain't You Baby, 1929



The Charleston



Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong: Dream A Little Dream Of Me



Now the next one Iam cheating a little but hey I wrote the thread


Vangelis / One more kiss, dear! Best love song ever ever ever !!!



If you don't like the music fair enough but you can not deny they sure had style.





If I could go back to anytime It sure would be the roaring 20's

I just love Cliff Edwards (Ukelee Ike)




One of the best if not the best singer ever..... Judy Garland.

Both are 1930's not the 20's but before 1950 and still when talent meant something.

Nice idea for a thread.



This is from 1950. It's part of the soundtrack to the "film noir" D.O.A. The music is very wild and forms part of a scene in which a character in the movie is poisoned in a crowded nightclub. The musicians in the scene are "miming" the music, although they were actually musicians. Other musicians, including authentic jazz musicians, recorded this music on a sound stage. The music was composed and conducted by Dimitri Tiomkin.

The actual jazz players heard are:

www.dimitritiomkin.com...


Heard on the soundtrack is trumpeter Ernie Royal, a longtime studio musician and member of various big bands who may have met Tiomkin through their mutual friend and associate Phil Moore. On tenor saxophone is Maxwell Davis, the father of West Coast rhythm and blues and member of the Fletcher Henderson and Victor Young orchestras. Davis’s combo included drummer Lee Young, who was also hired by Tiomkin for D.O.A.’s recording session. Ragtime and honky-tonk pianist Ray Turner played on High Noon and other Tiomkin films. George Boujie went from the Skinnay Ennis Army Band to the MGM studio orchestra. In addition to acoustic bass, he excelled on tuba, which he played at MGM and on the Flintstones animated series. Two years after D.O.A., he voiced “Tubby the Tuba,” the most famous tuba in history, when Decca released the classic Danny Kaye recording.


This is a famous movie scene. I looked into it a little more than I normally would because the playing on it was so good. I thought Louis Armstrong might have been involved, since the "miming" trumpeter is portly and the soloing style is very punchy, a la Satchmo, but no.
