Jukebox Saturday Night for Nov. 4th, 2017: The Charleston Chasers, Boney James, and KC & the Sunshine Band (Plus Free Valentino Pic) Edition

First up, something of a hot jazz piece ...

"Red Hot Henry Brown" by the studio recording ensemble The Charleston Chasers (1925)

The Charleston Chasers recorded on the Columbia Records label between 1925 and 1930 and included quite the line-up of jazz greats: Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Scrappy Lambert, Glenn Miller, Miff Mole, Kate Smith, and the brothers Teagarden, Charlie and Jack.

Of note, the second half of this YouTube video includes stills and even a momentary film clip of Rudolph Valentino. Among the stills is this famous one of Valentino at the seashore:



Next up, something appropriate for this rainy November night ...

"One Autumn Night" by Boney James from his album Backbone (1994)

This is a nice smooth jazz piece that would have been better served with this picture for a still frame:


We'll end with something Old School 1970s disco & funk fun ...

"That's the Way (I Like It)" by KC & the Sunshine Band from their self-titled album (1975)

Of note, I featured KC and the Sunshine Band once (or twice) in my old Friday Night Musical Interlude series -- but it is at least 4-1/2 years ago, so we're overdo for a re-featuring of this happy band.

OK, that's all for now. Please see my previous entry for an update.
