Song of the Week #14 – Sweet Georgia Brown (Del Simmons)

If you’re like me, you always thought jazz was boring and never gave it much of a chance. Until Landman convinced me to do a jazz listening experiment, I had never given jazz much thought. But I’ve been listening mostly only to jazz since January and if you know where to look there’s some pretty great stuff. This song pretty much feels like a party. Can’t say I’ve ever heard another jazz song that rocks this much energy. Strangely it’s hard to find much info about Del Simmons except from his obituary so feel free to read about him here.  –Heatwave
