Just read where Bostic wrote one of my favorite swing tunes, Let Me Off Uptown.
Roger Jones t / Rudy Powell as, cl / Earl Bostic as, v / Ted Barnett ts / George Parker p / Jimmy Shirley g / Vernon King b / Chick Cruickson d.
Recorded in New York, July 1947.
(Is that a sour note by Shirley at about 42 seconds in? My wife thinks it's just stylish...I think it was just left in.)
