Lately I've been researching Gene Greene "The Ragtime King" by going
through all of the issues of Variety from 1905 to 1930 on microfilm at
the UC Berkeley library. In the process of doing this I'm running across
all kinds of wonderful stuff about early jazz. I'm printing out all of
the reviews of jazz bands that I find and I probably get around to
compiling this information on the Red Hot Jazz Archive someday.
I've always been intrigued by the photo of Saxi Holtsworth's Harmony
Hounds that you can see here: http://www.redhotjazz.com/saxiinfo.html
I was quite pleased to find a lot of information about the band in
Variety. I've updated the text on http://www.redhotjazz.com/saxi.html
include some of this information.
