Have you noticed the ensemble sound of the Art Karle and his Boys 
session for Vocalion, January 13, 1936 sounds very much like the Bunny 
Berigan and his Boys sessions which commenced 24 February 1936. Even 
Frankie Newton plays with a searing tone reminiscent of Bunny, and you'd 
be hard-pressed to identify him as Newton. I wonder if a "house-band" 
style was imposed on them?
