"The situation: In the 1940s there was a "zone" wherein blues, big band swing, small band jazz, and the beginnings of rhythm & blues OVERLAPPED. The "jive" referenced in the title: Songs that are intentionally fun, funny, silly, irreverent, etc., songs about romantic frustration (or getting "weighed"), partying/getting loaded, etc. Many of these songs are blues with strong jazz overtones, and there's some early work herein by CHARLES MINGUS, LUCKY THOMPSON, and a few others that went on to bigger things. Except for WYNONNIE HARRIS, most of the performers here on not that well known (except to scholars of pre-1950s West Coast jazz and blues). The point, if I have one: This stuff is great fun, music to put on while you dress for your Saturday night on the town." - Amazon review
