    Bobby Smith – That’s For Sure!
    Delmark DE 484 [Apollo Series]
    Compact Disc (1996)

    In 1944 Bobby Smith accepted an offer from Erskine Hawkins, with whom he was to remain until 1960. Although he received three offers from Duke Ellington and one from Jimmie Lunceford, Smith was happy with Hawkins. Smith almost immediately reinvigorated the Hawkins band by writing one of its biggest hits, “Tippin’ In.” The music had the bounce and drive appropriate to Harlem’s Savoy ballroom, where Hawkins reigned for so many years. That’s For Sure! captures that same feel and is presented here from the original master tapes.
