Track by Track Review
Yup, it's that composition! Euphemia Allen aka Arthur de Lull wrote this in 1877, and it's been a piano staple ever since. This version features cool drums and pumping piano.
Al Hazan cut a series of singles more or less in the B. Bumble & The Stingers mold, among which was this ripping Hazan composition "Karate." great piano romping and rock'n'roll drums. Lots of energy and fun!
