Time Out Ten

Red Nichols and his Five Pennies

Feelin' No Pain

 

 

Bob Marley Quote

 

 

For this item you need to be able to stop for ten minutes.

We are often moving on to the next job, the next meeting, scrolling down social media, taking the next call ......'Time Out Ten' asks you to stop for ten minutes and listen to a particular piece of music; to find a time when you won't be interrupted, when you can put in/on your headphones and chill out. Ten minutes isn't long.

We can't guarantee that this will cure all pains, but at least this month's track might be uplifting.

Goofus

 

There are a number of versions of Feelin' No Pain, and another by Red Nicols with the Charleston Chasers, but this version is Red Nichols with his Five Pennies recorded in August 1927. Of course, the Five Pennies expanded to more than five and here we have ten: Red Nichols, Leo McConville, Mannie Klein (trumpet); Miff Mole (trombone); Pee Wee Russell (clarinet); Fud Livingston (tenor sax); Adrian Rollini (bass sax, goofus); Lennie Hayton (piano); Dick McDonough (guitar) and Vic Berton (drums).

 

Goofus

 

Pee Wee Russell's clarinet introduces the track and sets the pace until Adrian Rollini's bass sax rumbles in like a big bear dancing. The guitar break is from Dick McDonough and then the trumpet solo from Red Nichols. There is a nice trombone solo from Miff Mole before the 'harmonica-sounding' solo from Adrian Rollini's goofus (couesnophone, or queenophone, a free-reed musical instrument resembling a saxophone where the reeds vibrate when the desired keys are activated and the player blows through a tube). I'm not sure about the effectiveness of Lennie Hayton's piano solo but whole band comes in to party for the end of the track.
