Jazz Singers: Beef Jerky Time 9/27/06

This show produced entirely from the Smithsonian's 5-CD box set entitled "Jazz Singers." Besides the usual Frank & Ella & Louis & other stuff that I love, this collection has a lot of great songs from singers I've never heard of before. I tried to play more of these than not.
