8785RE: [RedHotJazz] Noone on Oliver's Camp Meeting Blues
- Aug 29, 2011Nice to have this one riding again.
What I previously observed was that the unmistakable sweet sound -- tone --
of Noone is absent from the last three Columbia sides which were apparently
recorded on the day after the first side. And does anybody know the evidence
for this ? The acoustic and balance for these sides -- and the tone of the
clarinet -- certainly sound different.
Buster was a fine technician and, chameleonlike, could cover various styles.
There is also a story -- which I cannot at the moment find -- that Buster
carried around with him a KOCJB record as an example of his own playing.The
only record which would fit here is the issue of Camp Meeting/London Cafe.
It is also reported in 'King Joe Oliver' that Noone, enigmatically, both
confirmed and denied his presence when played these sides. This also speaks
for his presence on only one side.
