AmazingReply This is great! John O'Donnell is my great uncle (married to my grandmother's sister). He is deceased. He often spoke about his adventures.Reply this is the best version of the number. The pictures are a knockout too!Reply So great!Reply Love that photo @1:51. Very lively version of that old song, though at heart I am still a dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker–especially when I'm not there. My native country, so to speak.Reply @fredjmp Thank you, Fred! :-))Reply @VictrolaJazz I second your opinion about that stupid duck. Well, they loved such little cute sound effects in that era, what can we do?Reply @Trombonology I totally agree with you! I am also very sensuous to all these little and the more, naughty imperfections in modern films about the Roaring Twenties – especially, when they usually mix up the exceptional sound of the hot dance bands with that of a swing era. Yet, "Chicago" was close to perfection in every little item, including really big city flapper style of both hilarious girls – Renee and Zeta, as well as the yummy big gigolo impersonation by Gere. 'sReply One of the best versions of this except for the duck that gets loose in the studio! Fortunately they wring its neck at the end!Reply I like this version. Espessialy the minor tuned trumpet and the banjo. Of course.Reply Great my friend!!Reply @240252 We ddn't live far from each other. I lived in the Evanston area.Reply Hello Grzegorz – Chicago has always been a super fantastic place for me for the last 21 years. It goes without saying that Chicago has problems like every other big city – however – New York City – the undisputed capital of the world – at times – has to move over and give Chicago tons of well deserved credits of every kind!!! That band is sensational to the max!!! Have a super great weekend coming up!!!Thanks a million for this vid!!!Reply Wacky (with all those horn muting effects), wild and toddlin' — and definitely anticipating the Flapper-period sound of a couple years later. Liked someone else here, I happily noted the inclusion of the CHICAGO film pic: often I'm not crazy about modern interpretations of the Jazz Age, as they are often full of anachronisms, but CHICAGO was very nifty as well as accurate in appearance and spirit.Reply @neilkcoker Thank you 🙂Reply @romympanlilio I also stayed for some time in Chicago, with my family who lives in Winnetka area. There were in America only a few things more stunnig for me than the late September's sunsets on a deserted and silent Elder Beach.Reply @dzheger Thanks D.! I just added a link to my newest uploading at Daily Motion and you are welcome to see it. Who knows? If things are going in direction unwanted by any of us, yet very much favoured by crazy politicians of today, prehaps I'll have to move out from YT, from the 1st of March? And – hopefully – it will be Dailymotion that will offer me and my archives a friendly retreat?Reply I lived in Chicago for 20 years. I love the music and those pictures of famous Chicago landmarks, Great post. Thank you.Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
