You may have come across this rendition of a great jazz classic but if you haven't then enjoy this tremendous version of Sugar by the fantastic Hot Antic Jazz Band. The solos are superb and the pianist is out of this world ! Enough of my mild recommendations, just enjoy..... Can anyone think of a another exciting version of this tune ?

Sorry, can't attach the link - but it's on YouTube.Perhaps someone can oblige.

Hello Derek,

Good to see you back on the board. I went searching on YT and found this link. Hope this is the version you had in mind.
That is some great piano playing...

Thanks, Don.

Yes, that's the one. Great isn't it ? Their other stuff is pretty good too and spans several years with some brilliant performers on the way.

Cheers. Derek

Here's a 1927 version with Alberta Hunter and one hot pipe organ.

Thanks for that, Don. Was it Fats by the way ?


Cheers,

Don't know. There's no credit on the JOL link indicating such.

Yes, that's Fats Waller. There's more details with the same recording here.

Thanks, Limden. That link was fantastic. Makes me sad that those wonderful artists have gone. Oh, how I would love to have met them.

Instrumentally, the Hot Antic version is, in my opinion, more exciting, but Alberta + Fats is definitely more moving.

Same tune different emotions. Any more like that, anybody ?

I like Lee Wiley's version which is utterly different again. You can listen, but not, I think, download it without subscribing to Last.fm.
Also I believe I read somewhere that Last.fm tracks are accessible only by people in certain countries, from memory perhaps USA, Canada, UK and Germany ? - but I can no longer easily find the reference.

Oops, posted too quickly again. The track CAN be downloaded. Approach with Internet Explorer and have a recent version of RealPlayer installed. Wave mouse arrow over the dark panel on right-hand side and a tab pops up inviting you to download to RealPlayer library.

Hmm. Just tried downloading again and found that it can't be done. Yet I'm fairly sure I succeeded a few months ago. There's more than one version among Last.fm's long list of Lee Wiley tracks which begins here.

Anyway Derek I can send you the mp3 I have (and I'm beginning to be uncertain exactly where I obtained it) if you care to PM me with your email address.

Thanks, Limden. I did enjoy the Lee Wiley version but the style is just a little too near the 1930s for my taste. What a difference a year makes, eh ?

Best wishes.

OK, Derek, you got me chasing down all the Sugars I could find. This seemingly simple song, Sugar, surely secured several songbirds and sidemen to solidify sassy and sweet sonorous sounds and musical sorites. I may have exceeded my quota of s's, sorry. So, enjoy this playlist via JOL.

Here's my favorite of Sugar, it's by Fred Elizalde; plus an interesting side bar about the recording.

Sumptous samples of Sugar sure sent shivers spinewards. Hows that ?! Thanks, Don. Really enjoyable- and the side notes make interesting reading. The tune does seem to lend itself to Bix's playing style where each note is an individual bubble of sound.

I can see another night of Sugar induced insomnia coming on !
