After her stint with Paul Whiteman, Mildred Bailey moved on to sing with the other great bands of her day, including the Dorsey Brothers and Benny Goodman. "Shoutin' In That Amen Corner" is one of the highlights of her recordings with the Dorseys. It is infectiously listenable, with surprising tempo changes, a sparkling clarinet solo by Jimmy Dorsey, and vigorous stride piano from Fulton McGrath.
