Modernism Monday: “Struttin’ with Some Barbecue,” Ray McKinley

Standard

 

I was going to hesitate to assert that this is the finest song one could listen to on Memorial Day, since it embodies the stereotypical Memorial Day activities of barbecuing and playing the clarinet, and then I realized that this my blog and I can assert whatever I damn well please.  So: this is the finest song one can listen to on Memorial Day – barbecue, clarinet, etc.  I will also assert that this is the finest version of this finest song.  I do love Jim Cullum and his Happy Jazz Band, but you have to love Ray McKinley’s panache.

    Ray and all of them are just so smooth I could die! They don’t really need the appreciative girls in bubble cuts grooving to the tunes, but I guess they thought they did.
