Fantastic!  This is exactly in my wheelhouse as it were.


So glad it's piqued your interest!  There were several more groups that I thought about including and ultimately didn't or couldn't--Bob Crosby's Bobcats (wasn't able to track down any of their recordings when I was working on the show nine years ago), Cab Calloway's Cab Jivers (the late 1930s/early 40s edition with Chu Berry--didn't seem to have actually recorded), and the small groups of personnel primarily from Basie's band that recorded in the late 1930s and early 40s (really agonized over this one, but the informal nature of those groupings--as far as I could determine, not generally presented or recorded under the rubric of a Basie-connected moniker, or performing live as a breakout unit with the band--led me to omit them).
