When you’re smiling - Classic Jazz Band 1997.
Only a short version of a tune made famous by Louis Armstrong, who recorded it as least three times and so did Duke Ellington in his early career. Here it is performed by the Classic Jazzband where Bent Persson plays an Armstrong style solo without copying any of the actual Louis work. This makes Bent so unique. Other members are Christer Ecke the drummer who sings the lyrics, Jens Lindgren trombone, Goran Erikson clarinet and alto sax, Holger Gross banjo and Goran Lind bass
