Jimmie Lunceford and His Dance Orchestra (1936)

A typical sepia band, with a ritzy aggregation of hot-cha instrument men. The band does several numbers with different members doing their specialty with great gusto and zip. Also, there are te The Brown Jacks, lively steppers, and Mya Johnson doing a hit song number.
