Song #10: “Basin Street Blues”

I saw a 3-record anthology called Commodore Jazz Classics banging around our house for years. It was never played. The vinyl records were shiny and new. I gave them a whirl sometime in high school and thought how different my childhood would have been if I’d grown up listening to jazz. “Basin Street Blues” performed by Eddie Condon and His Band has been on my playlist ever since.

I eventually transferred all six sides of the vinyl onto CD. I still don’t know much about jazz, but I know what I like.
