Raisin’ The Roof - Frankie Trumbauer and his Orchestra
Yesterday our friendly roofers came to replace our roof. The day before our roof shingles were delivered. Of course I had my camera ready and made some shots of the progress. It was a hot day and I was amazed that these two hard working fellows removed the old and installed the new within 5 hours.
What jazz music as background? The only suitable tune in my iTunes collection with the word “roof” in it was “Raisin’ the Roof”
A fairly obscure, but still catchy song recorded March 8 1928 by Frankie Trumbauer and his Orchestra with Frankie on melody C sax, but also with Bix Beiderbecke on cornet, Bill Rank trombone and Eddie Lang guitar
