Cruising with Earl Grant December 29, 2012

Posted by Ron Warnick in Music.

This performance by Earl Grant has become one of my favorite performances of Bobby Troup’s most famous song. I like the easy groove of this tune.

This recording came out in 1966 on a tribute album to Nat King Cole, who’d died of cancer the previous year. Cole popularized Troup’s “Route 66″ in 1946 when it became a big hit on the pop and R&B charts.
