Happy Halloween guys and ghouls! For a spooky treat today, check out this great track from 1930, “Mysterious Mose (‘Moises El Misterioso’)” from Rube Bloom & the Bayou Boys. Awesome bass saxophone work on this one by Adrian Rollini, and some terrifyingly hot clarinet playing by the one and only Benny Goodman! post from our Facebook page Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers – http://ift.tt/2wOIo3e
