    Transcription: "Five O'Clock Whistle"

    Do you wish there were more 1930s/40s big band tracks you could hear live? At this level, I will transcribe/adapt this recording and donate the work to Heritage Sounds! I revived many charts for the Chick Webb, Jimmie Lunceford, and Lionel Hampton projects, and with no campaign in 2019, we can still bring a few tunes back to life. Choose "Five O'Clock Whistle," and you can hear this Duke Ellington/Ivie Anderson number performed in December by the Lindy Focus All-Star Orchestra!
