ARE YOU IN THE MOOD FOR “JUMPY NERVES”? — Wingy Manone & His Orchestra, featuring Leon “Chu” Berry — 1939

WingyManone_TheLeftyA long, and rather frustrating search is over, dear swingin’ folks —

OK, I really tried everything for completing a strictly-from-vinyl-to-CD album, entitled:

From “Tar Paper Stomp” To “In The Mood” – The Chronology Of A Classic Jazz Hit – 1930 – 1966

Alas, I couldn’t find an untampered, non-echoed version of Wingy Manone’s “Jumpy Nerves” a.k.a. “Tar Paper Stomp” a.k.a. “Hot And Anxious” a.k.a. “There’s Rhythm In Harlem” a.k.a. “Hot String Beans” a.k.a. “In The Mood” on any RCA-LP, featuring this very track (I kept #3, because “JN” is the only echoed track on this LP, the others are untouched):

3. Leon “Chew” (sic!) Berry with Wingy Manone & His Orchestra – The Original (sic!) Victor Recordingsleon_chew_berry-chew._choo._chu___co

 

 

 

4. The Indispensable Chu Berry – Jazz Tribune – RCAMI0001841786

 

 

 

5. Great Jazz Brass – RCA CamdenR-3067753-1315046787

 

 

 

OK, I finally gave it up, and was short before ordering the very rare and out-of-print Mosaic-CD box Classic Chu Berry – The Columbia & Victor Sessions; alas, and sorry: But *NO*, no f…… way, just too expensive!

Following an inspiration, I began to search for “Jumpy Nerves” at ieBuy, and voila!

Now, hear this, and feel free to clickety-click on the beautiful HMV-label from 1943, and listen to the most authentic, the only untampered version of “Jumpy Nerves” on a black disc, as it was recorded by Wingy Manone & His Orchestra in New York City, on April 26, 1939:

Wingy Manone (tp, vo) Buster Bailey (cl) Chu Berry (ts) Conrad Lanoue (p) Zeb Julian (g) Jules Cassard (b) Cozy Cole (dm).
