Picture of Red Allen

Today's Soundie features Red Allen and J.C. Higginbotham performing "Drink Hearty".  This was released to Panoram in March of 1946.  It was one of five Soundies the duo did together.  Two others were: "Count Me Out" and "House On 52nd Street".

Red Allen is best remembered as an excellent sideman that played with Fletcher Henderson and Benny Goodman.  J.C. Higginbotham is best known for his work with Chick Webb, Mills Blue Rhythm Band and Louis Armstrong.

Excellent Soundie.  Enjoy!
