Continuing our look at lesser known California jump bands!

Joe Lutcher's Jump Band was one of the best on The Coast. They recorded for Specialty in early 1947, for Capitol in late summer and autumn of the same year and for Modern in 1949-50.  Then Joe found The Lord and gave up all that sinful jazz, blues and boogie. Read the full story in the epic original post, which includes an appearance by Little Richard. Another sinner saved?

Whatever you make of all that sinnin' and redemption, "Joe Joe Jump" is without doubt a stonkingly brilliant LP. Keep a jumpin'!

Crikey, malcee! Will I pop over and do the housework too? Only kidding - there's a few posts in the pipeline but I'm going out to enjoy some of that sunshine first. The cold beer is tempting ...

Teddy Cat Baz - thanks for all the "thank you's" you've given to the blog. I wish more people who downloaded from here would take the trouble to post a message.

Cheers and thanks again!
