The Bob Bain Archives
The October 18, 1948 broadcast features the familiar lineup of Bob, Ray Sherman on piano, Jud De Naut on bass, and Nick Fatool on drums. They kick things off with a tight version of “Brazil”, then song star Margo Powers comes in for “The Man I Love”, enlivened by Bob’s solo. The quartet swings through the Ellington tune “Bojangles”. Margo returns for a paean to shiftlessness written by Joe Venuti and Lee Jarvis: “Ain’t Doin’ Bad Doin’ Nothin’”, but enterprising Bob closes out the date with a virtuosic version of “Dark Eyes”, with his harmonics and Ray Sherman’s dexterous piano taking us out on a high note indeed!
