what was the date?
- Hello Domingo
According to "Jazz Directory" (Carey, McCarthy, Venables) Howdy Quicksell did not play banjo on "Toddlin' Blues", and probably not on "Davenport Blues", because he arrived late, half way through Davenport Blues. Probably, he only played on "Magic Blues" and "Nobody Knows What It's All About" at this session.
Sorry I can't help with The Sioux City Six.

The Sioux City Six recorded "Flock O' Blues" and "I'm Glad [not sad]"
on Oct 9, 1924 in New York. The copper masters were shipped to
Richmond, IN on Oct 11.
As to the the Rhythm Jugglers session, Bob's explanation is correct:
Howdy Quicksell arrived late (he was travelling from Detroit to
Richmond and missed a train) and did not appear in the recordings of
"Toddlin' Blues" and the immortal Bix composition "Davenport Blues."
