      I've was re-listening to some Johnny Dodds yesterday and just realized the session listed below has the same front line as King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band - 2 trumpets, trombone and clarinet. Furthermore, the penultimate chorus features a trumpet duet - albeit never as sophisticated as the King and the Dip - and in the last chorus, on the break, George Mitchell and Natty Dominique quote the KOCJB duet break from Snake Rag: 3rd chorus - April 6, 1923 - Gennett recording.

      So this was an obvious tribute to the KOCJB in both instrumentation and performance.

      My question is -

      What other bands of the 1920s also used the KOCJB 2 trumpets, trombone and clarinet frontline?
