Pretty ordinary.
27 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a short from Vitaphone and it can be found on the "Warner Brothers Big Band, Jazz & Swing" DVD collection. This set consists of six DVDs and almost 11 hours of shorts! This is, for the most part, a very straight forward performance by Larry Clinton and his orchestra. Unlike some Vitaphone shorts, there is no story and the set is amazingly sparse. It's as if they didn't put a lot of thought into it and just filmed the band in action. The only way they differed from the norm was Clinton asking the audience which songs of his they wanted, though I am sure this was 100% scripted. I mean, what if none of them knew any of his songs or asked him to play a Tommy Dorsey tune?! You also get to hear Carole Bruce sing a couple nice numbers but overall this is a pretty ordinary short with little to distinguish it.
