Album: Till We Meet Again

The Mills Brothers. Till We Meet Again. Pickwick SPC-3158, early 1970s (or maybe 1960s). (on vinyl, from a thrift store)

Another short (about 22 minutes) late Mills Brothers album. This time they’re backed by an aggressive jazz ensemble that sounds like a big band. I don’t care for this one as much (I guess I prefer my Mills Brothers sleepy, and this album is incessantly and often inappropriately upbeat), although the swinin’ version of “Mr. Sandman” is amusing, and “Basin Street Blues” has a wonderful throat tromnet solo that I’m not 100% certain isn’t a real instrument.

6/10 (Okay).
