Re: Jimmie Noone With Kid Ory's Creole Orchestra - 2 Damn Fine Tunes Added
- These tracks are airchecks from the Orson Welles Mercury Wonder Show.
They are currently available on an Upbeat CD. The tracks with Noone
were the last he ever recorded. His replacement in the Ory Band was
Wade Whaley and, in the show following Noone's death, they performed
a very moving Blues For Jimmy.
- According with my discography, Mutt's Blues is from a broadcast in Los
Angeles, 15 or 29 march 1944
and was issued in Jazz Society 558 (a LP). Other title played in these dates
was Weary Blues

I don't know much about this record on the Carousel label (2501). I don't
know when it was recorded or where but it's a damn fine example of New
Orleans Jazz. If anybody can clue me in that would be cool. I'm guessing
1943 or 1944. Jimmie Noone died in April of 1944. There seems to be some
applause at the begining of "High Society" so maybe it's from Orson Welles'
