Soundie: All Ruzzit Buzzit

Today's Soundie features Dallas Bartley and His Orchestra.  "All Ruzzit Buzzit" was released to Panoram in August of 1945 and is one of five Soundies that the band released during the mid-1940's.

Dallas Bartley was the former bassist for Louis Jordan's band, he formed his own band in the early 1940's.  As you can see, he always seemed to prefer to stay in the background.  His band had a very nice groove to it, but I feel that their vocalist lacked the energy and "pizzazz" to make their songs really jump.

Regardless, it's still an entertaining tune, and the dancers in the background silhouette make this a fun little Soundie.
