Santo Pecora, who was playing trombone with Sharkey Bonano's band on Bourbon Street made and released several sides, all of them featuring his tremendous, driving trombone. A young 20 year old Pete Fountain is heard here, with George Girard. This release came from Europe and was previously released in the U.S. by Santo Pecora and Norman Granz on Clef Records EP-117 in 1950.
