JAZZ TRIVIA: Wednesday

Today, we mark the birthday of singer, actor and political activist Paul Robeson. He appeared on hundreds of recordings and acted in scores of films. However, he only sang with 2 jazz orchestras. Which ones were they?

There was 1 correct listener response to Wednesday’s question. The answer (with thanks to Arturo Gomez) is  

Blue Prelude with the Ray Noble Orchestra, London, 1931

King Joe, aka Joe Louis Blues, Parts 1 and 2, with Count Basie Orchestra, NYC, 1941
