8841Re: [RedHotJazz] Josephine Baker
- Sep 25, 2011I replied much, much too fast, trusting two suspicious sources, one book by
a Phyllis Rose and,
apparently, Scott's page as well.
I do not know who invented the approximative date of July 1930 for some of
Joséphine's hits, which she was to perform on stage only in late
September, but it is denied by one Frémeaux compilation, according to which
the tracks recorded with the Mélodic Jazz du Casino de Paris ranged from
October 1930 to December 1932 - with a special mention for two of them
supposed to feature Oscar Aleman, Confessin’, and My Fate Is In Your Hands,
in June 30th 1931.
From which I fear that the "collective personnel" actually includes whoever
was known to have joined the Casino band some time or other.
