- Andrew, here's a couple more for you:
John Wittwer Trio (Wittwer, piano; Joe Darensbourg, clarinet; Keith
Purvis, drums)Recorded in Seattle at radio station KOL studio, Sept.
26, 1944, issued on Exner 1. (Exner was a Seattle dentist and jazz fan

Pete Daily and His Chicagoans: Pete Daily, cornet; Bud Wilson,

Dink Johnson, piano. Los Angeles, 1948. On Euphonic LP1202.
The Tailgate Jazzband led by Conrad Janis, Los Angeles, October 23,
1949 (unissued, two other tunes from the session issued on Record
And the previously mentioned Turk and Scobey.
There was a private recording of an early Lu Watters session which
has, as I recall, Watters, Turk, I believe Bob Helm, Paul Lingle on
piano, and possibly Gordon Edwards on drums. It is available through
the San Francisco Traditional Jazz Foundation website as Lu Watters
and his Yerba Buena Jazz Band vol. 1. I think it was recorded in the
late 1930s. The foundation's site is http://www.sftradjazz.org/order.html
Finally, my father, Axel Tyle, played drums with the early Castle Jazz
Band in Portland. A test recording of Wolverine was made by the group
in 1944 but never issued. Personnel included Ned Dotson, cornet, Bill
Pavia, clarinet, George Phillips, trombone, Monte Ballou, guitar and
my father on drums.
