A favorite of Trad. Jazz bands everywhere — Chinatown, My Chinatown is a 1910 swing number from William Jerome (w.) and Jean Schwartz (m.). Its medium-up tempo is balanced by the relaxed, easy flow of the lyrics: “Dreamy, dreamy Chinatown, Almond eyes of brown, Hearts seem light and life seem bright, In China, Chinatown”. PHDS sticks to a classic treatment on this one (well, almost): A hint of ”Chopstix” off the top for a smile then into the Trumpet on the head. We let the Vocalist take it from there into the Open Solos. It all comes to an explosive end with the whole band giving it what they’ve got!
