I mean, ^^^^^ these cats were straight monsters! Listen to the emotion, melody, tightness in the soloists and those laying back the arrangement. This was 90 years ago, would have been great great grandparents cuttin' on that session. And the recording too, the way you hear everything from warmth of the lead player to the mix of the players in the room. All likely just playing for one mic, insane.
