31 August 2015, No. 117, The 3 Pieces, ‘Shortnin’ Bread’

Jason Sokol gave me the LP this is from, and it’s excellent. The 3 Pieces’ rendition of “Shortnin’ Bread” jumps in here at No. 117, though if we took the tempo anywhere but the beginning, the tune would be farther up the list. Listen to the big, badass break (107 bpm at 2:15 or so) and tell me you don’t like this song.
