3184Re: Pops Foster
- Sep 2, 2006Hi Andrew,
I'd recommend his work of late 1929 in general, especially the great
Luis Russell dates, and some instrumental tests with Armstrong ("I
Ain't Got Nobody," "Dallas Blues") in December. I'm not as familiar
with his later (and probably better-recorded) work; he did play on a
Zutty Singleton record in 1940...
His session with Morton on 11-13-29 marks one of the few times Jelly
brought back the string bass after the 1926 Red Hot Peppers, but
Foster is under-recorded... He's far more audible on the Wilton
Crawley session of 12-2-29 (also with Morton).
