(The Titans - Doo-Wop does Basie)

Something special tonight. An unreleased track by the L.A. Doo-Wop group The Titans, during a session they cut for Specialty in 1958. Formed in 1957, The Titans recorded for a number of different local labels during their short-lived career. Their hit for Specialty was "Don't You Just Know It", but they had several other titles in the can before they left the label to settle for a brief stay at Dolphin's of Hollywood before pressing on and calling it a day. One of those unissued tracks was this one, their rendition of the Count Basie classic April In Paris. Why it hasn't been reissued is a mystery but that's no reason you can't hear it here first.

One more time.
