“Sweet Georgia Brown” is a jazz standard and pop tune written in 1925 by Ben Bernie and Maceo Pinkard (music) and Kenneth Casey (lyrics). The tune was first recorded on March 19, 1925 by bandleader Ben Bernie, resulting in a five-week No. 1 for Ben Bernie and his Hotel Roosevelt Orchestra. As Bernie’s then nationally famous orchestra featuring the number did much to popularize the number, Pinkard cut Bernie in for a share of the tune’s royalties by giving him a co-writer credit to the song. It is widely known as the theme song of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team. This is an excerpt from a traditional jazz concert performed by the Jordan Klapman Octet, featuring some of the world’s finest musicians. The full piece also has extensive baritone sax, banjo, drum and bass solos. All proceeds from the CD of the concert (email link) are donated to the relief and support of the people of Haiti through the Presbyterian World Service and Development’s Haitian Relief Fund. Featuring: • Julie Michels: vocals • Jon Seiger: vocals & trumpet, • Jordan Klapman: piano, • Rob Somerville: trombone, • Tom Skublics: clarinet/saxes, • Jamie Macpherson: banjo, • Jack Zorawski: bass, • Glenn Anderson: drums Recorded live at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church Toronto.
