- Mar 22, 2009Thanks Yves, I just saw your message... Yes, I found it strange the Frog DGF 69 essay (about the Missourians) didn't mention these groups, nor Harry Cooper. Still, it's great to have these sides reissued together.
I agree, much fantastic work by Cooper--his two sessions with Ellington (March 1926) quite intriguing as well.

I do not have the Seminole 78 (wish I did, fantastic music), I do have one of the Harry's Happy Four ( the one w RQ as the second trumpet, I also own one coupling of the session with Sara Martin, the HHF are probably some of my favorite music ever committed to wax, I am quite transfixed by Harry Cooper, and follow him through all the records he made in Paris), I wonder this myself sometimes, excellent record, will check by Harry Happy Four 78 for the data this week

> BTW did you notice the notes on the CD issue of the Missourians do not mention the excellent music before the Victor's on the CD ? Odd for Frog, they are usually so good about that.

> Just listening to recent CD 'The Missourians- -Stoppin' the Traffic' (Frog DGF 69), and most interested in the excellent small band sides by the Seminole Syncopators and Harry's Happy Four (1924-25). This release lacks composer credits; who (if anyone) might be credited as composer of "Sailing On Lake Ponchartrain" ? Chilton has Harry Cooper born at Lake Charles, Louisiana (and pianist Graham Jackson as the leader of the Syncopators) .
