Havin' a Ball with Calvin Boze

I've been enjoying this one for a while and keep forgetting to publicly sing its praises. R & B trumpeter/singer Calvin Boze had a vocal presence very similar to Louis Jordan at his best--his band arrangements swing almost as much as Louis' band as well. Grab a collection of Boze's songs recorded for Aladdin records between 1949-52 at Bebop Wino and prepare to wear out your dancing shoes.
