Let’s Stop the Clock . The Carlings playing at the Rendsburg Jazz Club, Germany in 1996.
I had never heard this tune. Fortunately I own the two volumes of Brian Rust’s “Jazz and Ragtime Records ( 1897-1942)” and the only recording listed was by the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra with a vocal of Bob Eberle on Feb 10, 1939.
21 year old Gunhild takes of with a haunting vocal, maybe a bit harsh for some of you, but the thrilling sounds she creates with her perfect pitch I find just totally amazing and it gets me emotionally. Wonderful sax backing by Gerd and Max and after a half chorus by Max on tenor, Gunhild takes it out on trumpet with unbelievable power and the kind of jazz timing which one usually only hears from classic jazz greats like Louis Armstrong, Henry Red Allen or Roy Eldridge. A masterpiece!
