Ballin' The Jack -- jimmy McPartland 1954
Obviously a little bit later during the evening at this jazz dance. The folks have become a bit looser, girls on guy's laps, dancing barefeet and ties undone. The spirit is certainly there. And it should with the fabulous music of Jimmy McPartland trumpet, Pee Wee Russell clarinet, Jimmy Archey trombone, Willie "The Lion" Smith piano, Pops Foster bass and George Wettling drums.
The cineast at the time, for good reason of course, was more interested to show these folks having a good time than filming the members of the band. These clips would have made more of a historic impact later on by just showing the musicians, but at the time, and what counted most, was showing the pleasure a good band like this could create.
