      Uncle Dave Lewis drops a swinging one on us by the Chocolate Dandies:

      Smack!
      http://www.redhotjazz.com/songs/chocolate/smack.ram

      Here is what Uncle Dave has to say about it:
      "Gorgeous alto from Bernny Carter to open the track in his most trailblazing
      style for two choruses, then Roy
      Eldrige steps in to turn up the heat with the help of Big Sid's rimshots.
      Hawkins, not to be outdone,
      plays some really far out stuff and stretches out for about a chorus and a
      half. Carter jumps back in
      to ride the whole group out. Note how in Hawkins' middle break he starts to
      play changes similar to the
      mid-section of "Stompin' at the Savoy" and the other cats follow him. That's
      not in Feather's piece, which
      is typically rudimentary anyway."


      If you like that then get yourself over here and listen to some more:
