Thanks for the input; my sources (including Laurie and the "Team") list these
acc. Alberta Hunter c. July 1923
acc. Anna Jones c. July 1923
acc. Hazel Meyers 5 August 1924
After the Hazel Meyers date, Fats seems to have made no records for a year
and a half. Part of the confusion regarding the Bradford personnel on 2
November, 1925 might come from the rejected October session you
mentioned, which featured the same two songs. Also, Armstrong really
dominates the November date; it was to be his last in New York for a while, and
I guess he knew it (he was back in Chicago, recording, a week later)...
