      Partly in answer to my own question on the reason for nominating Addington Major as a possible for the trumpet player on the Joe Sims session, it seems as though JSP is using the Waller discography by Stephen Taylor to guide them through the project - at least this is what it says on the Fats Waller yahoo discussion group created by Linda Fitak (no, I'm not a member, but the archives are publicly accessible). Taylor apparently initially sold his discography as a computer file via a now defunct web site (fatswaller.com) still retrievable via the "wayback machine", but not alas the sample pages. If I'm not misreading things, the discography has now been incorporated in a book by Taylor on Fats' radio transcriptions and airshots, published by Scarecrow press.

      Since I'm not a Waller specialist, I don't have this book - the Laurie Wright book was as far as I got, and this lists Metcalfe in the dreaded italics. Can anyone who has the book check to see if major is listed as a possibility and see if there are any reasons given for suggesting him.
