I considered this upload ideal for December 21st. Hal Kemp (1904-1940) was a jazz alto saxophonist, clarinetist, bandleader, composer, and arranger. Art Jarrett took on leadership of Kemp's orchestra in 1941, after Kemp's death in a car accident. At the University he formed the Carolina Club Orchestra. This group toured Europe in the summer of 1924 under the sponsorship of popular bandleader Paul Specht. Kemp returned to UNC in 1925 and formed a new edition of the Carolina Club Orchestra, In 1932, during the height of the Depression, Kemp decided to lead the band in a new direction. One of the main reasons for the band's success was arranger John Scott Trotter, who often used staccato triplets. Hal Kemp's compositions included "Blue Rhythm", "In Dutch with the Duchess", "Five Steps to Love" and others. This excellent record was made in 1932. Vocal by Sknnay Ennis. May this song be a good start for the Winter season as well as for a cosy and happy Christmas period!

Thanks so much Lou; great you loved this song and that you equally consider it appropriate for the occasion. I love this song myself, especially that wonderfully delicate vocal.

I'm deiighted you loved this song Genia. Thank you very much for that beautiful Christmas card comment! I'm happy for you, reading you got very mild weather, exactly like over here, where the weather is totally out of whack... with both Autumn and Spring flowers blooming on Christmas! Till now we got just one single day of snow but it's long gone by now. And oh, even in the Alps they are begging for snow nowhere to be seen...

We might, Jack; here as well weather is excessively warm for the season. Yes you may be very well right about those chattering teeth, it certainly sounds like it. Wishing you cosy holidays -- even if the climate seems to be upside down.
