Buddy Johnson Orchestra-Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball? (1949)

Well....we're coming up on baseball season....spring is in the air. I'm posting this one, though, because I'm getting ready to post a compilation of one of my all time favourite bands, with one of my top favourite vocalists...The Buddy Johnson Orchestra, with Ella Johnson. Been a fan for mostly my entire mom had almost everything they recorded...78s...LPs....she was a huge fan of Ella's voice. Once you hear those unique pipes, you may be, too. Here's one preview before I post: Buddy and company doing "Did you see Jackie Robinson hit that ball?", a novelty recording from 1949.....more to come....stay tuned.
