Along with Milton Brown, there are bands like 'Roy Newman and his Boys' & 'Jimmie Revard and his Oaklahoma Playboys' that are shuffled into the catogory of western swing, but are much more inclined towards hot jazz than country fiddle music (although they all would have a reel or breakdown or two in their repertoire). The majority of the tracks that make up this volume are all 'good ole, good ones', from 'Some Of These Days' to 'Chinatown' and 'DarktownStrutters Ball'. Each performed in the way that only the Brownies could lay 'em down!
