Marc's list works for me. Sarah Vaughn's early version of "Nice Work If You Can Get It," Gilespie's "Birk's Works," and Mobley's "Workout" and "Another Workout" are also great recordings but, except for Nat's tune, none of these are really about working. However John Handy got right to the point (and stayed on it) with "Hard Work."

Bruno Leicht

As a little swingin' addition: How 'bout "Whistle While You Work" with Bea Wain & Larry Clinton (1937)? "Labor Day" in Germany is on the 1st of May, by the way.

"Working Man Blues" with King Oliver, 1923; "Thw Worker's Train" with Cab Calloway, 1940; "Gotta Go To Work Again" with Tommy Dorsey & His Clambake 7, 1936; "Workshop" with James Moody & His Bop Men, 1948;

"I've Got My Love To Keep Me ... Work" is a pure fun title, played by Brewsk Litovsk & His Vodka Bloos Tooters, as performed in October 1917; the cylinder got lost during the Russian Revolution ... :)))

Michael Steinman

And for Tuesday morning -- when the alarm clock sounds -- there's Adrian Rollini's 1933 recording of I GOTTA GET UP AND GO TO WORK, featuring Pee Wee Russell and the vocalizing of Red McKenzie. In this century, Marty Grosz sang and played this on an Arbors CD.

Ed Leimbacher

While us stiffs take off "Workin'," here's a wine glass raised to you, oh laborer in the vineyard... small enough thanks for the Works of Marc. (Cat's still got Miles to go before he sleeps, too.)
