Clancy Hayes & The Salty Dogs – Oh By Jingo
Delmark DE 210 (1997 CD release of 1964 vinyl)
Banjo player and vocalist Clancy Hayes is well known to two generations of traditional jazz fans who remember his hit recordings with Bob Scobey’s Frisco Jazz band. Appearing at the Plugged Nickel in Chicago he decided to make this record with the original Salty Dogs, celebrating their 50th anniversary in 1997. Like old wine, Clancy improved with age; this is timeless music you can tap (or stomp!) your feet to.
