Ipana Troubadors: Sunny

June 21, 2010

Ipana Troubadors

Recorded in 1926

More slick and professional dance music from Sam Lanin, whose Ipana Troubadors were the house band for a radio program sponsored by Ipana toothpaste. (We heard them earlier playing “Hello  Cutie.”)

Sunny was one of Jerome Kern’s most successful shows, and this is the title song. As usual, the band gives it an irresistible dance rhythm. Other bands had better jazz musicians and special arrangements, but Sam Lanin’s bands made the patrons want to get up on their feet, and ultimately that’s what you want most from a dance band if you’re hiring one.
