Liner Notes:

LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
Pete Fountain With The Jubilee Singers With Chorus And Orchestra Directed By Charles bud Dant

Although there are some jazz buffs who decry popularity as musically corrupting, it is to clarinetist Pete Fountain's considerable credit that he has, with his own unique style and great talent, captured the imagination of one of the vastest and most comprehensive audiences the medium has ever enjoyed.

In this album-generating characteristic musical excitement through his extremely successful amalgamation of his clarinet, a rhythm section, orchestra and vocal chorus - Pete delivers a collection of swinging standards. Among them, the fast-moving title song, Let The Good Times Roll, and such colorful favorites as Talkin' 'bout You, Get Happy, Georgia On My Mind, Corrine Corrina, Angel Eyes, And The Angels Sing, and many others.

As usual, Pete's clarinet provides the vital impetus to the proceedings, supported by some of the most outstanding instrumentalists on the scene today - Stan Wrightsman on piano; Morty Corb, bass; Jack Sperling and Nick Fatool alternating on drums; Bobby Gibbons and Bob Bain, guitar; the Jubilee Singers (Ann Terry, Gene Lanham, Jack Gruberman, Sally Sweetland, Francis Scott, Gwenn Johnson, Bill Lee, William Brown, Sue Allen, Peggy Clark) ; and the orchestra under the able and imaginative direction of Charles "Bud" Dant.
