I just came across this little gem on Spotify – a title like that would normally have made me steer well clear, but this is Chick Webb. Digitally remastered or no, the quality is still a somewhat patchy, but there’s still some great stuff on there, and if you ever needed evidence of what an incredible drummer the man was, it’s a good place to start.

Here’s a small clip from Harlem Congo to give you an idea.

Here is the Spotify link, and you can buy it here on Amazon, here on eMusic, or here on iTunes.
