Re: Pops Foster
- One I neglected to mention, probably his most famous and best-recorded
work of the '20s--"Mahogany Hall Stomp" by Louis Armstrong. Foster
lends great rhythmic support to blues choruses by Armstrong and J.C.

- There is an American Music CD (AM105), on which Foster is alone with Art Hodes and he recorded quartet sessions with Don Ewell, Darnell Howard and Minor Hall for Good Time Jazz in 1957. There are also latter-day trio recordings with Ray Burke and Hodes on Delmark. The Luis Russells of the 1920s are of course remarkably well recorded, but Foster is more exposed in the small-band context.

I now have the needed sound files.
Of course, I hope there will be more discussion about early jazz bass
players in general.
