AllMusic Review by

Hot Chicago Jazz, Blues and Jive: 1936-1937 collects 17 tracks the Harlem Hamfats recorded in those two years, featuring the band on their own, as well as accompanists. Most of these performances are quite good, and many of them have never been released on LP before, yet the presence of the sidemen tracks makes this more of interest to collectors than the curious.
