The Charlie Mariano & Jerry Dodgion Sextet – Beauties Of 1918 (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“This album has a WWI theme because the song selection was chosen for their popularity during the 19-teens. Many of the songs are timeless, like track 1, After You’ve Gone. Others have fallen into obscurity, but when this album was recorded in 1957 many were still in the public’s mind since WWI ended less than forty years prior. Note that the last track, Vamp’s Blues, was written by Charlie Mariano who was not born until after the war (in 1923). Still, the overall theme of this album, with a distinct West Coast flavor, is what drew me to it.” (from Amazon review).
