The collaborative vibe and the performances by Tiny Parham and his Musicians in 1929 for Victor Records make this recording a timeless classic. The washboard, a common American folk instrument, is introduced to Jazz, and takes a solo.
The washboard and rhythm parts are provided by drummer Ernie Marrero. This recording made in Chicago is one of the 28 sides Tiny recorded for the Victor label. This particular song was written by Hartzell Strathdene, Tiny Parham’s given name.
