Mississippi Mud - Hot Antic
Mississippi Mud - Hot Antic Jazz Band 2004
A slightly different arrangment than the 1928 Trumbauer recording with vocals by Bing Crosby, the Hot Antic version is just as intelligently and musically executed as their hero’s interpretation some 76 years before. Wonderful harmonies by Michel, Martin and Philippe. Combining musical talent and hard rehearsal work certainly pays off for these fabulous jazzmen.
Michel Bastide trombone and cornet, Bernard Antherieu clarinet, Jean Pierre Dubois bjo, Christian Lefevre tuba, Philippe Raspail alto sax and Martin Seck piano.
Recorded at the band’s 25th anniverary concert in Nimes, France
