Spirits Of Rhythm- Roots of Rhythm & Jive
Jsp
[ Jsp6706 ]
Price: $15.00
The Spirits of Rhythm were orginally billed as a novelty act but what they really were was an r&b string band.  Featuring the madcap vocalizing of LEO WATSON & the swinging and articulte guitar playing of TEDDY BUNN the group was kind of a link between the swing string sounds of Django Reinhardt and the good time jive of Louis Jordan.  Using the 4 & six string tipple as a rhythm instrument, the group wailed madly on many of their uptempo recordings and also sang sweetly on their pop songs.  Guitarist TEDDY BUNN, when asked what the group was like had this to say:
 
"It's just rhythm-and-blues as we used to call it. It ain't changed that much, not to me anyway. If the Spirits of Rhythm was playing today that's what we'd be doing. We was ahead of our time and didn't know it."
