THE LARRY BORENSTEIN COLLECTION - VOL 12 - Kid Thomas' Dixieland Band 1957
Before the Larry Borenstein collection was discovered there had been only on 12 inch LP issue of the Kid Thomas Valentine Band with Ed Washington. Here is a selection of songs from the collection including old pop songs and some jazz standards reflecting the band's dance hall period. As always, Kid Thomas leads his band with his usual exciting sparse style.
Band personnel here are Kid Thomas Valentine trumpet and leader, Edmund Washington alto sax and vocals, Louis Nelson trombone, Joe James piano, Burke Stevenson string bass and Sammy Penn drums.
