Nat Gonella enlivened the output of a number of bands before striking out with his Georgians, with whom he recorded extensively. These tracks are all excellent examples of his playing during the late thirties and early forties. It's apparent from both the choice of material and its treatment how much he was influenced by his idol Louis Armstrong, but he remained very much his own man. This is virtuoso playing of a high order.
P.S. Having rated this initially as 5 stars, I feel I should qualify that insofar that it does not quite measure up to a couple of the other CDs available, because it lacks any discographical detail.
