AllMusic Review by

Doin' What I Please is another of Living Era's faithful, comprehensive collections of jazz from the '30s and '40s. This compilation focuses on the work of pioneering African-American jazz artists like Fletch Henderson, the Chocolate Dandies, Don Redman, and Louis Armstrong. Tracks such as Fletch Henderson's "Whiteman Stomp" and "Hot Mustard," Armstrong's "Beau Koo Jack," and Don Redman's "Shakin' the African" are among the highlights of this energetic, expressive collection of swing and classic jazz.
