Not My Victrola: Lift Me Up...

What a difference a band and bandleader make.  The first video is a contemporary recording of The Charleston.  The tuba, banjo, and piano are nice, and the clarinet is good, but if you need something that will lift you out of your seat, you have to go back to the original, ACOUSTIC, recording by Paul Whiteman in 1925.  When the clarinet works its magic at 2:07, my heart always does flip-flops.

We've featured The Charleston here, before, but this is one that is always worth repeating.
