Description

Shim-Me-Sha-Wabble
McKinney's Cotton Pickers, Directed by Don Redman
Composed by Spencer Williams
Recorded July 12, 1928

Personnel:
Don Redman, George Thomas, James Dudley - Alto saxes
Prince Robinson - tenor sax and clarinet
John Nesbitt, Langston Curl - trumpets
Claude Jones - trombone
Todd Rhodes - piano
David Wilbourn - banjo
Ralph Escudaro - tuba
Cuba Austin - drums

This tune was a standard in the band's library. Don wrote the arrangement on a front porch on Frederick Street in Detroit, opposite a tennis court. Don said that watching the tennis game was relaxing as he worked on this fine old New Orleans stomp tune. The give and take of instruments and the forceful ensemble, bring out all the exuberance of the old tune. Redman himself has a natural joyous way of playing and expresses it here on both baritone and alto saxes.
