Inside The Groove

A best mate for dancing at ballrooms in the middle 1950s :)

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

A ballroom dancing - a good-old-days-style entertainment in the U.S. since pre-war decates - the attendance had been dropping in the 1950s. But Buddy Morrow tried to stick with the style - a danceable, listenable ballroom music with his new style.

As a matter of fact, he didn't do any boring styles. Along with the changes of the mainstream of Jazz and dancemate music, he stayed with good-old musical style but with new bleed.

This album, maybe recorded in 1955, contains tunes rather mellower than ordinary Big-Band Jazz music, but some of them here are very swingy and well listenable in our recent ears.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

6 out of 10
