Just listening to Radio Dismuke and up comes "Paul Whiteman Orchestra - How About Me".

Who is the vocalist on this? It must rank near to the worst ever, along with Wes Vaughn on I'll Be a Friend, and Seger Ellis on Bix and Trams' Blue River.

Any more candidates ?

You did a nice job there Gregory, it is now a very presentable recording.

However I still think the vocalist on the Whiteman 'How about Me' is about twice as bad as Sam Sanders smile.gif

Damn good job that Bix was not on that record !

Yep, that's bad!

So bad, that I removed the vocal! This one was tricky... not sure it's perfect, but there it is:

At 1:23 there's a measure with an extra beat in it (3/2 in cut time).

Yeah, that's one way to do it. I doubled a short 2-note brass figure instead, which made it a little less choppy.
