Last Sunday, I used Fats Waller’s "Jitterbug Waltz" for Song Lyric Sunday, and decided I’d use a couple of instrumental versions of it for Battle of the Bands. Here are the two contestants…
Vince Guaraldi Trio: From Vince’s 1962 album In Person.
Bobby Hutcherson Quartet: From the 2007 Jazz Baltica festival.
Those are the contestants. Here’s what I’d like you to do:
- Listen to the two songs.
- Decide which song you like the best.
- Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
- Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:
I’ll tally the votes and announce the winner next Thursday, July 22, so please cast your vote by then.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Vince and Bobby!
