Earl Bostic & His Orchestra (Jimmy Shirley on Guitar) - Gotham 151 (1947)

Always liked this label.

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.)
