T.N.T. by Fletcher Henderson and His Orchestra 1925


The orchestration of T.N.T. on Columbia 509 D, makes it one of my favorite Fletcher Henderson recordings. Just look at the lineup in the session, and you will see why:

Coleman Hawkins (cl,ts,bass sax ); Louis Armstrong (ct); Elmer Chambers, Joe Smith (tp);
Charley Green (tb); Buster Bailey (ts) Don Redman (as,ts,arr); Fletcher Henderson (lead + p);
Charlie Dixon (bj); Ralph Escuderos (tu); Kaiser Marshall (dm)
New York City, October 21 1925
