.... "Freeze and Melt."



This comes to you courtesy of Ken B. Thanks very much, Ken! Very kind of you.

"Freeze and Melt" is a composition by the great (and highly successful) team of songwiters, Field and McHugh. Surprisingly, there were only four 1920s recordings of the tune listed in Lord' discography. The Eddie Lang recording mentioned in the previous posting of May 22, 1929, and three more.

Fletcher Henderson April 1929. http://www.jazz-on-line.com/a/ramd/Cam3798-B.ram 

Joe Turner and His Memphis Men (Ellington)  Apr 4, 1929.  http://www.jazz-on-line.com/a/ramc/COLW148171-1.ram Get a load of that string bass by Wellman Braud (the first string bass solo on record?) and the interpolation of <em>Rhapsody in Blue </em>at 1:42. And bells, bells! Ring 'em bells!!

Duke Ellington April 12, 1929.  http://www.redhotjazz.com/songs/ellingt ... n/part2.ra (A night At the Cotton Club, 2) 12-inch 78. At 3:48 an interpolation of Rhapsody in Blue. Great string bass by Wellman Braud.
